    A lot of questions for just a little 5" carved stone figure of a man? wearing a robe,
    Anyone know who it might be? what kind of stone this is? Does it look antique? lol on that one. Where might it have been made?
    Thanks.

    At first I thought a modern version on Kwan Yin, but then saw the hands in prayer, so I think you're right. Has a mixture of styles, but interesting.

    I thought it was a man. No hair on his head. And that nose lol.

    Who, What, Where, When must be a journalist major! I think she has a hair covering that makes her look bald.

    Nice figure. My first thought was also Virgin Mary with a veil or full cloak. Personally I don’t think it’s an antique. Maybe a souvenir market item?
