Your carving is of a Burmese musician, possibly ethnic Shan from the headdress. I would guess it to be early 20th century, since the colors appear to be oil-based and brighter than on older carvings of this type. Attached is a 19th century photo of a group of musicians in the latter British Colonial Era, when Burma eventually became the easternmost province of India during the so-called Raj.
