It seems to be bronze
It has a gold paint application to most of the clothing. It's not the best job as several spots were missed and it bleeds over into areas that should be bare.

My uncle moved to Thailand to teach English and he brought this thai teppanom statue back with him on a return visit back in the late 90s. I'm not sure it's age buts it's been in our possession for 25 years.
My uncle moved to Thailand to teach English and he brought the thai teppanom statue back with him on a return visit back in the late 90s. He gave it to his mother, my great grandmother who had it on her nick nack shelf until her passing in 2001 and his soon after. It was then passed down to my grandmother who kept it on the same nick nack shelf until a moved saw it boxed away for 10+ years. Several strange happenings have surrounded the statue. Despite being a 5lb bronze statue, it has toppled over loudly several times for no reason on the glass nick nack shelf without busting the glass. No worldly force such as passing trains or trucks were behind the capsizing, nor were any other valuable nick nacks harmed in the events. Also several of my female family members who touched the statue became pregnant soon after, even those with fertility issues.
