A tiny Chinese carving

This is a tiny (2 inches/8cm) carving in a pale marble. I bought it off a lad in the Dunhuang area of China about 15 years ago. It is of no great value either culturally or monetarily but l like its size and shape, it sits snugly in my hand, the rather ugly little face grinning up at me.
