That statues looks like a typical Chinese/Japanese okimono. It's hard to say what it's made of from those photos but it looks like it might be made out of resin and a copy of older pieces.
A good way to check if it's resin as opposed to bone or ivory is to take a pin or a needle, heat it until it's red hot and then touch the statue in a discrete place where nobody will notice (say underneath). If it bubbles/melts and smells like plastic then it's resin.
