These are two very beautiful, especially old Moba figurines that were brought around 1950 by Hans Himmelheber from Heidelberg in Germany.
There were three types of Moba figurines.
The small ones served as family protection. They were often found in the huts of the family.
The larger ones served as protection for the tribe and the largest were placed against the houses to enforce protection of the ancestors. These figurines were discovered late because few would benefit from bringing them along.
However, they can now be found in famous museums.
