I believe this is Chinese, but am not certain. It's small, measuring 2&1/4 inches tall by 1&1/2 wide, yet weighs over 4 ounces. My first impression is that it is a carving of a sacred cow, but it could be a water buffalo! It comes in its original, silk lined box. The box is dented on one corner, as you can see in the photos. The carved piece is perfect, and I've included a close up of the markings on the bottom. A nice addition to your collection of Asian art, or would make a lovely gift.
