At first, Since english is not my native language I apologise for any miswriting or stange sentences.

After discovering a few forgotten boxes i inherited from my grandparents witch I stowed a few years ago in the attic, I decided it was time to look what was in it.

The boxes where filled with vases, dishes and statues. Most of them not really my taste except these 9 figures. They came (covered in dust) from the box labeled "chinese"

I did some google search on 9 chinese wise/gods. But the only thing that came up was the 9 emperor gods of thaoism, as far as i can tell these emperors are all men and 3 of the statues are female (As far as I can tell)

The statues are massive bronze about 15-20cm (I believe that is 6 to 8 inches?), highly detailed and the attributes they are holding are seperate.

So... I would be very gratefull if anyone can help me indentify and tell me something about these strangers on my shelf.
