Art identification needed: Dali-like sculpture, very unusual

I have an unusual item that I have not been able to identify. I'm hoping someone will recognize it. Here are a few details:

- It appears to have been created or inspired by Salvadore Dali. If you look closely, you'll see the image is made up of female figures, and the profile appears to be Don Quixote.
- It is made entirely of a heavy metal, although I'm not sure what kind.
- Measurements: 5 1/2" height; 4 1/4" at the base
- There does not appear to be any artist or foundry marks.
- It might possibly be half of a bookend, although it doesn't appear to weigh enough for that purpose.

This is truly an unusual and extraordinary work of art. Please reply if you have ideas or questions.

Yes, it's a book end.

Too small to be a door stop.

More valuable if you have the matched set.
