This piece is from the Zen sect of Japanese Buddhism. What I find most interesting is the white plastic bead. It has an image of seated Buddha inside when you hold it up to your eye and look at a light source through it.
The only thing I don't know about this piece is what kind of wood it is made of. I know it's next to impossible to really ID wood through pictures but does anyone want to take a stab at it?
