Possibly bronze with gilt overlay. Don't really know. Approximately 8 inches
Got at estate sale 25 years ago. From collector.
Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal. This appears to be a Thai brass or bronze lost wax casting Buddha statue made quite recently, 1970s or later. A very decorative souvenir or home decor item but unfortunately not antique. I assume the sentimental value it represents to you will be much higher than the current market value.
