So I've got this little figure, which is hollow and carved out of some kind of bone -- I suspect antler. It was pretty clearly used as an incense holder/burner. If you blow gently into the top, a lovely scent of incense emerges. I really don't know anything about where this guy came from; my husband found him at a Goodwill store in Somerville, MA.

I would greatly appreciate any insight that anyone may be able to offer. I'd love to figure out where this little statue came from, and what he might be worth.
