Anyone any idea what this may be, where it’s from and age. It was in a lot purchased a auction. Has 2 holes at the bottom and a larger one at the top. No idea of its purpose. Help appreciated.Terracotta head?????? 8c3a8210

Looks like an oil lamp. The wick would sit in the hole

Wow how interesting I would never have guessed that. Any idea of a possible age or origin?
Many thanks
