    Soapstone. Look up Japanese Lore - Monkey & Ox - or monjey on ox's back. You may find the story of what this represents. A lot of their carvings like this represent a myth or story from lore. I had to find out what a frog on a man's back was in a Chinese piece and I found the story after some searching!
