A pair of corbels from a Buddhist temple in Japan. 
They're made of zelkova (aka keyaki) an extremely hard Asian elm, known for the beauty of its grain, its durability and also as the best wood in Japan for anything structural.   These would be from the mid 1800's to the very early 1900's. Over 100 years old. From when a Buddhist temple was rebuilt.  One side of the corbels has a sea motif. One with waves and a carp, (carps are a symbol of durability and strength)  and the other side with only waves. These sides would have been on the inside towards the interior of the building.    The other sides also have a carving. These sides would have been facing outward with the one on the left side (due to the cracking on it's surface) most likely facing south as it seems to have received more sun.    Both corbels would benefit from a stain, wax or some kind of refinishing.   We've done nothing to them. .
Keyaki is a very hard, dense wood. Unpacked they weigh 17 pounds together.  They're 19 inches wide, 28 inches high and 1 5/8 inches thick.
