Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal. This appears to be a 20th century lost wax casting copper alloy / pot metal / bronze statue with traces of the mold visible, depicting Garuda standing on one leg while in yab-yum with his consort, the deity holding a ghanta and vajra, his consort with kapala and chopper. This is a decorative but rather modern travel souvenir statue. The estimate is based on similar sold at auction. There is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the item.
