We have two bird baths already. I was hoping to actually have it like in the ground some sort of way, either standing up or as a flat medallion maybe.

With a little water in it it would make a nice frog / toad habitat, depending on your location. Put it in a quiet corner of the yard, maybe with some shade-loving plants around it. Frogs and toads help keep the bugs under control. It will attract the occasional garter snake too (a good thing). Watch that it doesn't become a mosquito nest.

Good idea, Thunder. And the backside is just flat.

Smokey - This website might steer you to some help with regard to how to tweak this into a amphibian friendly habitat down in TN:

I have a few garter snakes that call my backyard home and a bullfrog visits every now and again. They are good neighbors.

We have medallions like that at our local zoo. Maybe it was from an old zoo that's been closed or updated.

When travelling to India I have heard that similar items are used mainly for room decoration. The elephant is a symbol of luck and fortune and it should not be positioned facing the door. I am kind of superstitious so I would not use it as a dog plate as someone suggested above.

Like I said, I would sort of like to incorporate it as a garden medallion in the ground somewhere on the property, but can't decide where it would look the best.

It looks to me like it was part of a fountain. Or my next guess was birdbath.
