Hello! I was told that you fine folks would be the best resource into helping to identify some items I received. All I know is they have been in the family for 50-100 years, and likely from the Southwestern US. There are three pieces of most interest a Rain God (?), and two pots. Any advice would be valuable! And of I've posted incorrectly, please let me know, I'm new to this forum. But having fun looking around and learning! Cheers.

Very interesting pieces, they don't appear to be reproductions to me. :icon_scratch:
But they may well have been produced in the 1920s for the tourist trade in Taos, NM.

The Taos Art Colony was an art colony founded in Taos, New Mexico, by artists attracted by the culture of the Taos Pueblo and northern New Mexico. The history of Hispanic craftsmanship in furniture, tin work, and other mediums also played a role in creating a multicultural tradition of art in the area. The 1898 visit by Bert Geer Phillips and Ernest L. Blumenschein to Taos was an early step in the creation of the Taos art colony and the Taos Society of Artists. In addition to the society, Mabel Dodge Luhan was instrumental in promoting Taos to artists and writers within her circle. In the early-20th century, modern artists infused the area with a new artistic energy, followed in the 1950s by abstract artists.
