Figure with tumpline (strap around head) weighs approximately 10 lb 5 oz. Figure without tumpline weighs 8 lb 12 oz. Each figure measures approximately 13-7/8" tall x 9 - 9-1/2" from shoulder to shoulder. Carved of extremely dense, heavy wood.We are not experts on these nor on wood, but these are true vintage carvings carved from authentic African wood. Brown residue came off these busts onto our rag when we cleaned them, so they have had some type of stain applied. Male figure (one without tumpline) rocks somewhat when you move it (the bottom must not be totally level), but it stands straight as pictured.
My grandma displayed these on her china cabinet for many years. Beautifully carved and in very good vintage condition See pictures.
