The Two Queens – in different eras.

Updated. The added lower picture offers an explanation to the metaphorical meaning of the figurines. An allegory between human reproduction and vegetative reproduction. Central to meaning is the plow that penetrates the Earth (or the Earth Mother) to sow the grain seed in the furrow, thus impregnating the Earth, rendering it fertile.
Updated pic. Look at the curious imagery (in red circle), it is key to the allegory that the picture imparts. The fertilisation of Mother Earth in personification. The statuettes are a central feature in a very ancient mythical story, but meant to represent cereal cultivation.
