The figure is adorned in a finely detailed robe with a layered collar, and is holding a pipe in his right hand. The statue is seated on a base with legs crossed. Size is 2-1/4” H x 1-3/4” W x 1-3/4” D, and weighs 7 oz. The statue is in good condition, with some slight wear to bronze patina on the body and around the rim of the covered base.
