Can anyone identify this rock with strange markings

Hi all,

 

I recently visited the Isle of Wight and my 2yr old son found this stone on Shanklin Beach. He obviously liked the shape as he wouldn't leave it alone but upon inspection it appears to also have man made(?) markings on it.

As you can see from the images it is quite a distinct shape and worn in particular places. These look like some sort of hammer marks on one end and worn from rubbing on the other.

The markings seem too deliberate to be natural as the rest of the stone is untouched!?

 

I thought that maybe it is some sort of eroded figurine? Or maybe a stamp/seal?

I really am guessing so any suggestions to what you think it is would be fantastic and stop me from going insane lol
