That statue looks Southeast Asian to me (parts of India, Bali, Malaysia, etc.) and is probably Hindu in origin. It's a votive statue from a shrine.
I can't say for certain if it's bronze from a photo. Is it cold? If so it might be. It shouldn't be magnetic. Another thing you can do is very carefully scratch a little under the base, if bronze the metal underneath will be gold in colour.
Regarding age, it can be difficult to say with this sort of thing. My guess would be 20th century but a photo of the base would certainly help with dating.
I hope this helps,
