I'm new to the forums, and my purpose for being here is actually to help out a friend of mine. She had a small (approximately 6 inches / 15 cm) sculpture given to her as a gift many years ago, and because of a very excitable puppy it was broken last weekend.
We both know very little about the sculpture. It was a gift purchased outside of the country and the design seems Eastern (Hindu, Buddhist, possibly Chinese?) in origin, though we're not even certain of that much. We'd like to find a replacement but despite our best efforts we haven't been able to figure out what we're looking for. I'm hoping that by asking for help here and posting a picture of the sculpture we'll be able to find a replacement or at least know a little more about the origin of the piece and what it was depicting.
Thank you all very much for any information you can offer.
