Depending on its scale it could be SLA, which cures liquid resin using a laser. Very high quality finishes - high enough to print most of this statue outright - but very limited size.

If it's bigger it could be SLS. Powder lasered together. It can retain high, but grainy, detail. Finishing by hand, on the part of an artist, could produce quality of this caliber.

It's about patience, finishing and setup. It could be done with a $300 printer if you have the right skills.

I think the pants are fabric, with the legs being separate from the body before assembly.

The Formlabs Form 2 is generally considered the best, for its overall package, SLA printer on the market. It's pricey but the quality is good and the resins are good. SLS isn't really consumer friendly at any level.

You model it in your software.
Cut it into smaller parts and print each at a time
File, fill, sand, putty to get a better finish
Paint with primer
Glue together
Paint with more paint
Profit !
