I've had him or her for about 7yrs and I just was moving it and realized that one of the legs and the base are termite eaten!!!! I had to amputate 2 inches off the right leg, but it looks pretty good (wood) I also realized the base was toe nailed I to the ankles ! Check it out!

I am guessing here, but it does appear to have a Japanese influence in the design.
does this come alive at night and scream at people?

I'd say it was Indonesian (Javanese). It looks to me like Semar, though he's not quite fat enough. Did he start out with a black sarong?

Well, on second look, I think it might be something that you'd find on some South Pacific atoll. Or not.

It's definitely Asian, I thought it resembled some Japanese woodcuts I have seen before.

You're right, I think I saw something like it on Suntory Central.

You can wrap it up in plastic wrap real tight and put it in freezer for three weeks, that will take care of termites. There is a resin wood filler to fix the feet and you could put it all back together
