Marlon,

Here is Peter's explination of how they were made.

...the arms and hands were first rough formed in shape...with layers of heavy leather (you can see these layers on the arms).

They were then carved to shape...then covered with very thin goatskin (this you can see on the arm at left). They were then finally carved again...creating detail, and smoothing them out. Then they were covered with paper-thin cowhide.

I don't know what they are for though, or what the other side looks like.
