      Just found out that these were possibly for 1950s and they are of Rama and Sita and historical couple. I sent this shot to a company they don't know what Siwa is though? They don't think it was signature here is the website nice guy to email me back.
      Hi steve,

      The Balinese woodcarver almost never signed his carvings with a description of what he has created. Sometimes he puts his name and bali Indonesia on the bottom.

      So I don't know what SIWA means here, but it is not what this is. This couple is a personification of Rama and Sitra, the love-pair from the Hindu ramayana story.

      Good carvings, made probably in the fifties.
