Did you get the 3 other pictures and the size?
Expert:  Nora replied 1 year ago.

Hi,

Yes, thank you.

The is a later 20th century Buddha figurine that is made of molded polyresin and not hand carved stone.

On today's market, this has a high value of $25.

Why is it so heavy?
Expert:  Nora replied 1 year ago.

Hi,

They used ground stone powder as the base to the polyresin mixture, which would add heft, especially at the size of 8" x 8".

Hi,

I would be happy to help you with any items, however I only assess one item or matched set per question here.

When you post a new question, please add "For Nora" or "Hi Nora" at the beginning of your question so as to ensure that I will be the one who answers your question for you.

The only items I do not assess for value are clocks, coins, watches, sewing machines, swords and firearms.
