Someone gave this to me as a birthday present a few years ago, they thought it was a Tiki...I'm not so sure.

They purchased it from Ebay and the seller said it was an antique tiki from the Sumatra region. It's pretty heavy and appears to be carved from lava rock.

Any insight into it's origin would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!
