    I can see quite a few telltale resin bubble holes. Quick check for resin is check what is its temperature.
    If it’s room temperature when you hold it then likely resin, if it’s stone then it will be colder.

    Look up Basalt stone which is used quite a bit for these type of carvings.

    The figures are copies of well-known sculptures.

    The bust of Nefertiti, held in the State Museum of Berlin -

    The funeral mask of Tutankhamun -

    The third is probably one of the many sculptures of Rameses II.
