Could not pass on this! It appears to be carved and fashioned from a combo of turtle shell (wings and tail feathers) as well as horn(base stem/bodies) with a small bit of plastic(dragon tongue/teeth) I believe that the intricate "feathering" effect was acheivef by carving into material only partially, leaving the piece intact.
The base is black laqyered wood.probably made in Hong Kong..First time Ive seen a "statue" made from these materials! There are missing pieces : a whole wing(phoenix) a nostril "hair" (dragon) ...but hey...

    It's a possibility that the shell is horn as well.
