Kyuyo Street. Sweet shisa.

When in pairs, the left shisa traditionally has a closed mouth, the right one an open mouth.
The open mouth wards off evil spirits, and the closed mouth keeps good spirits in.–Wikipedia

historic manimals
Sitting on a shelf at Burnley Moran Elementary School, Charlottesville, VA. I think the 2nd figure from the left is local grandee Th. Jefferson.
3rd from the left whichever indigenous princess wore her hair in a ponytail. To the far right, US Representative David Stern Crockett (the hat).
That leaves two, an unsmiling man/woman far left and an African American male. ID help please.

Burnley-Moran was built in 1954. It takes its name from the first two women to head Charlottesville schools. Carrie Burnley was principal of McGuffey School for twenty-eight years, and Serepta Moran was principal of Venable School for twenty-one years. The mascot is the bobcat.–Cvillepedia

Potential source of injury, 1/2″ emt, capped with protective doll heads.

Doll heads were judged too valuable, replaced with tennis balls.
Tennis balls were stolen by pedestrians, the very class of people they were intended to protect.
