They were stolen from temples in Tamil Nadu before being bought by art galleries in Australia. One of them is a Nataraja, which belonged to the Chola dynasty of 11th-12th century.
The other sculpture is of Ardhanarishwara, which represents Shiva in half-female form, and dates back to the 10th century.
