    This appears to be a popular Chinese theme, the figures are too small to be certain, but very likely the Three Star Gods under a pine tree with clouds above and children in the bottom left corner. The reverse is a more distinctly carved pine tree.
    The material is likely soapstone, a common medium for such work. The colors are correct, but it has a little more gloss than one usually sees on soapstone. Nice piece, hope this helps, Jim
