      It just looks like art to me.

      Thanks Truth, but it not JUST art.

      I have several of them in my home, and I found out what the other two mean. One represents unity, the other, a bond between mother and child.

      The second statue is the head of what? Is that a feather? A man or woman? What is that in their hands? The earth? A child? I need to know because something happened the other night.
      Peace!

      Sometimes it looks like they represent "aliens" and other times it looks like artistic exagerations of people.

      What happened that made you ask?
      So if I should ever fall and get caught in a hustle
      Let em know that I died while I fought in a struggle
      From the hoodrats to rich kids lost in a bubble
      Spray paint it on the streets and in the subway tunnels
      Write it down and remember, that we never gave in
      The Mind of a Child is where the Revolution Begins
      So if the solution has never been to look in yourself,
      How is it that you expect to find it anywhere else?

      Ok, I'm not sure what the first is suppose to represent but the 2nd one seems like mother and child but I'm not sure.

      The first one looks like it means "Don't say nothing won't be nothing" but seriously I have no idea but they are very nice pieces.

      So, does everyone believe the photo of the second one is a woman. Can anyone guess what is that piece on her head?
      Peace!

      the 2nd looks female, cus she's on her knees and her belly is protruding (pregnant). Her thighs are also very thick. adding to the concept that she's pregnant. The egg looking thing in 'her' arms makes me wonder. Could be the artist realized they couldn't sculpt for shit and gave up on a possible little baby head, and went with an egg. She could be reptilian also.
