I really don't know what to make of this one. I like it a lot, but most people I've shown it to think it ugly, eerie, or both. I'm not sure what it represents but it appears to be a human-type figure emerging from a tree trunk. It stands about 4" tall and is unsigned.
It has the look of a tribal piece that illustrates a legend of some form, but I really have no idea where or who it's from. Any ideas or suggestions (except "smash it")?

It’s ethnographic/tribal. Either original or a copy for the tourist market; difficult to tell. Monkey motif? Indonesian; Indian or South American... take your pick

I agree but I have seen quite a number of African pots and don't think it's African.

It is really impossible to get any idea of the age from the photos.

If it was mine, I would put it in a suitable place in the garden and show it off.
