What does this mean?

Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal. This appears to be a 20th century carved wood statue of General Guang Yu 關羽 or a martial door god men shen 武門神. The "umbrella" is a later addition. The gilding is of gold color but made from sheet metal paint. It is a very decorative statue but not very old.
The estimate is based on similar offered or sold at auction
