    The heads of the larger ones seem to be a variety of Geese.

    Oh this my reply got lost somehow, let’s try again…

    hopefully these photos are much more helpful! They are quite small, the photo of the hole in the bases are from the two larger ones. Found in the many boxes I’m trying to go through of my grandparents things!

    They do have an Indonesian look, but the eyes seem to be inlaid, which is more of an Indian thing.

    @keSla , could you tell us more about the material and if the eyes are inlaid or not please?
    Is there any translucency of the material in the thinner parts?
    Also, where did your grandparents live?

    The eye are inlaid yes

    It has been a while since you started this thread, and a few days ago I saw a carving much like yours, but couldn't remember who posted it or when. I seem to remember it was from Laos.
