Group of three religious figures with origins in either China, Nepal or Tibet. The largest of the three characters (unidentified) measures approximately 9 1/4" high, 3 3/4" wide and 3" deep. This piece is in rather poor condition with extensive wear throughout and a chip in the wooden throne base at the rear which prevents it from standing perfectly upright. The other two pieces, a medium sized depiction of either Lakshmi or Saraswati, and a small Buddha (measuring only 3 1/4" high) are in fine condition, exhibiting patina consistent with their age and manufacture.
