Actually it looks like the evil eye sign used a lot in Greek culture (certainly Mediterrean)

Painted, and there is another eye in the shadow.

As far as I've read there is no carving.

Could have been done by someone from the Mediterranean, but is not located in the Mediterranean.

I figured I would hang the 1950's picture for a day before posting a more recent picture, because ...

NOTE: The painting has nothing to do with the significance of the item.

OK, I found one arcane reference to "monster rock" in Arizona, with the 50's photo. Never heard of it, and have not been able to find another reference to it.
