What religion? Or if they represent any specific deities, if any? They were found in my basement, and we aren't sure where they came from. Any information would be appreciated. Thank you.

The positioning of the hand is a clue, this one here indicates patience, the touching of the third finger to the thumb. I am no scholar, but it looks to me like a buddhist piece, perhaps there is an expert here who can help you further

@kareigh,
It looks like it is a teaching Buddha
