This looks to be a piece of what is called - Carpet Rock-
I've read a few articles and there is not a great consensus on exactly how they are formed.
The main idea is that they are sandstone and quartz formations that have differential weathering.
Some have higher iron content and sometimes bleed red(rust).

They can be very ornate with many layers and twists.

I've seen them in quite a few places. There's a bunch in Arkansas state parks that get walked on all the time.
Some in Texas and Oklahoma.

Carpet Rock

Petit Jean State Park Down near the bottom is a good picture.

You may want to go back where it was found and look around for an actual formation.

Tombstone makers would have equipment that could carve rock like that. That initial thought led to the idea that it could be part of a cemetery memorial.
