What is this Neptune Cherub Thingy?


Ok, found this weird little Neptune cherub thingy at the thrift shop the other day.  It is cast iron.  He has a rack growing out of the top of his head.  Any ideas of his original purpose?

Here's what I did with him!  He got a coat of Krylon dove white and a distressing.  He will now hold the mail that is to go out to the mailbox.  Kinda cute now!
