What does this mean?

Thank you for contacting Mearto. This is a large iron head of a bodhisattva. The writing on the back of the stand appears to be Tibetan. The hairstyle and lotus flower suggests that she is a depiction of the Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara or KuanYin.

Sculptures like these often are painted with gilt and there appears to be some remnants of paint on this sculpture.
