This is an acrokeramo, used for decorating roofs in the past, now many are used for simple decorations in country houses, like this one in Tinos island Greece.

On the small image I thought it was a North-American Indian, but now I see European traits in his face. He looks a bit sad, but I think that was the trend in ancient times, to give the portrait dignity.
