A Chinese optical illusion antique bronze statue

Which direction are this boy and girl facing?

This deceptive statue can be perceived in different ways.

The girl is standing on her head... 
or arching her back underneath the boy.

The boy is standing on his head... 
or arching his back on top of the girl.

The language describing the statue is also deceptive. Is this figurine an "Antique Bronze" because it is an old statue, or is "antique bronze" merely describing the statue's finish?
