      This looks like the Apis bull to me, which was a sacred bull worshipped by ancient Egyptians.

      I totally agree with previous answer.
      You can get loads of info on line regarding Apis bull.

      Its of quite poor design, the detai is so minimal

      Thank you so much for the info! And yes the details are minimal with lots of marks from being grinded, but still a cool piece.

      By any chance does anyone know how old this piece could be? Since its brass It’s obviously not from ancient Egypt, but I do know that my great grandmother purchased this at a thrift store in the early 1900’s, but that’s all I know.
