    They look like smoking pipes to me. But I'm no expert.

      Lots of parts of the design don't match common Native American designs, I think they are more modern decorative pieces...

      They look like resin items that were probably painted, but the paint bleached off over the years. My guess would be a red hot needle pushed into hidden spot will smell like burning plastic. If not they are probably more modern polymer clay.

            The heads just don't look Mayan. They don't have the coffee bean shaped eyes of Mayan heads. I would lean to Aztec or Oaxaca.
