What does this mean?

Hello Kristen,

Thank you for your appraisal inquiry with Mearto. The item presented appears to be a carving of a seated bodhisattva, measuring about 14 and a quarter inches in height. The object appears to be composed of alabaster and was once painted. Based on the image provided and the assumed condition and paint loss, the object may date to the 19th to early 20th century. However, an in-person examination may determine more definitive attributions. A bodhisattva is a figure that is working to achieve a level of Buddhahood, yet not at the level of the Buddha.

The estimate provided is based on recent auction estimates and results of comparable alabaster carvings of bodhisattva figures of similar height. The estimate is contingent on a full condition report. Please note asking or dealer prices may vary. Thank you and please take care.
