Nice Find
Limassol museum should be able to identify it.
Why don't you take it there?

Well your IP address shows you are posting from there.
Any way any Museum will be able to identify it.

   Your bust is not Muslim.  It's Greek.  I had one just like I purchased in turkey.  We have ways to find who is posting.   Muslims do NOT do BUST or heads on Coins or any thing else.  They find it a Bad thing.    It's a Female God of Fertility.  Don't know her name.

Yes I agree with Homie it looks to be in the Style of the Ancient Greeks, Looking at the rust marks I would say it has a Steel Core, Thanks for posting it.
