    I am fairly new to collecting, 2008, but I find I can't settle on one thing to love. I was attracted to asian items first and this little bronze figure was one of the first items I aquired. It is signed on the bottom but I have not been able to tell anything about the mark.

      I've been collecting for close to forty years and I haven't settled on one thing to love. Eclectic is just fine. (Sorry I can't offer anything about your Budha, but I like it.)

      I love your Buddha statue since I had one similar to this.
      This statue is from Kamakura, Japan (One of famous Buddha statues in Japan). Top row said "Kamakura", 2nd row, I cannot read clear excepts the last character (?) means "big".

      Enjoy.

      the placement of the two himatoshi in the base indicate to me that the piece was used as a netsuke at one time. The wear on the front looks like the surface was worn off by the brushing of a kimono sleeve
