This is an incredibly unusual and extremely early Ganesha. I believe it is Cambodian, and is pre-Khmer, although I am not positive of it's exact origin, as I am not an expert with Ganesh figures. I believe it is over 1,000 years old based on the casting method and style, the sculpting, patina, and overall feel of this item. While it has a burial patina, a bit of the trunk and one arm missing, it still has an incredible presence and feel of quality.It is unlike any other piece I have had or seen. It is quite heavy at 17 ounces, and he sits a bit over 3 inches high
