Hello, I can't help with translation/unreadable but these are still being made and many get painted and has it chemically removed afterwards, I hope yours aren't. The carving reminds of some I've seen on Madura/East Java work. Looks like teak wood or less likely jackfruit wood. The character, I hope I'm not wrong Abilawa (Bima) and Gatotkaca.
