      It isn't stone, it's pottery, handmade, and Mexican. This is a black clay whistle from Oaxaca. They've been popular Mexican souvenir items for years, and come in many forms, birds being the the most popular. But I've seen turtles, rabbits, dogs, horses, frogs, cats, and pigs, to name a few. They are still being made, so it's a little difficult to date. Probably no older than the 1960's.

      And I'd say it's a steer.
