I bought this from a morning market / swap meet during our trip to Beijing ... I believe it's a carved stone of some type as it weights a ton... My poor husband carried it (with great difficulty) in his carry on back to Singapore (when we lived there)... I love the serene look and the unique tall and slim shape.

    Hi DrFluffy, That's what husbands are for, isn't it? It could be a Buddha, there are so many, but I think it might be an empress figure. It's similar in some respects to one I have in camel ivory, see what you think, third photo:

    Best wishes, Jim

    jwendell... thanks for the comment... I still do believe it's a standing Buddha with the right hand raised.... Here is the meaning:

    Right Hand Raised – Protection from evil, warding off fear. This is typically in a standing pose, but you can see a seated pose with right hand raised.
