A friend found this sticking out of the ground behind her house. It's marked .925 and is hollow with this strange shaman figure on the top.

Hopefully someone recognizes this.

Can we see a photo of the .925 silver mark? You will need to use a macro lens setting or a camera that takes in focus close ups..
My friend found it. I should be able to see her this weekend.

I would have to go with South American, Mayan style. They sell all types of stuff there carved with the hands like that, totems, slingshots, etc. But... I couldn't find the exact match...

That definitely looks like the figure.

It appears to be a 925 sterling, foreign silver mark but I dont know which country. It could also be a pseudo-hallmark. It looks pseudo but it could be the camera.

Thanks everyone for the input. I was hoping to see one attached to whatever it was intended for, but that seems like a longshot now. I sent the link to this thread to the woman who found it.
