What does this mean?

Hello Jerry,

Thank you for choosing Mearto with your online appraisal.

Based on the images, this item is:

A Buddha Shakyamuni statue (9x6), from most likely 20th century. Since he was born as the prince of the Shakyas, after his enlightenment he was known as “the Shakyamuni” or “the Sage of The Shakyas,” and from his clan name, he was later called Gautama Buddha.

It is not possible to discern whether the material is alabaster or soapstone. No marking or signature. Probably mass produced.

Fair condition.
