Rilki's picture

Put a magnet to it...Cast Iron, if it attracts the magnet; Bronze if it does not attracts a magnet.  Most antique Buddha heads are made of Bronze with gilt (gold overlay).

i think it's Japanese, possibly from the Nara period.  if I were you, I'll send photos to Christie's to see if it something they'll sell and offer you an appraisal.

Goodluck.
