Initially identified as ancient ""Siamese"" stone weights. They are obviously not stone but metal. Subject matter and style suggest that they may have come from South India or Sri Lanka. Analogous temple carving style make dating difficult. One is a hamsa (celestial bird), the other represents a composite creature commonly called a yali. The yali is much more worn than the hamsa, suggesting greater age. They are in a simple yet refined style, adding an aesthetic touch to routine commercial transactions dependent upon standardized measures. They do not appear to be from the same set, but from the same tradition and system. It would be interesting to compare the weights of the two. The strong, abstract modeling of these items, especially of the yali, are likely to appeal to modern sculptural tastes.
