This is a lovely item. It is a vintage figurine depicting Michaelangelo's "Pieta", Mary holding the lifeless body of her son, Jesus, after the crucifixion. It was made in Japan by ART, and is white bisque porcelain. It is 5-1/4" high and 4" wide, nicely detailed, pre-owned and in great shape. There is a tiny, light, discolored inclusion within the porcelain itself on Jesus's thigh. Manufacturer's red and silver foil label is on the bottom.
