Just like the small Guennol Lioness sculpture and the Lewis “Warder” sculpture, this is another one-of-a-kind lost and found dynast sculpture, that is many centuries old. (Size: 3 1/2 x 1 inch) Please contact me if you need more photos and I will return to the storage (museum) and take them in accordance to your request.

This rare dynasty sculpture was purchased in the USA.
Thank you for contacting Mearto. This is a stone figural sculpture of unknown origin. The robe worn appears as though it could be Chinese, but could also be the garb of a European monk as well. The figure appears to have a beard indicated by the elongation of the face. The indistinct facial features are highly unusual; the high set eyes as slits and smiling mouth are unlike anything I have found in carved work from Mesopotamia or elsewhere, as you indicated in your description.
From my observation, I believe this is a recently created piece done in an archaistic style. The Fair Market Value is between $20 and $50.
