My Vodou snake walking stick is broken

I bought this walking stick in Haiti. Carries the figure of a man on one side and woman on the other. And heading towards them is a figure of Dumballah, the powerful Vodou snake spirit, which is the manifestation of peace and transquility. It is a mass produced souvenir bought at a handicraft shop in Jacmel for only US$5.  I asked a few people and got assurance it is nothing more than a souvenir.
 
Unfortunately, while clearing customs at Turks and Caicos' Providenciales Airport, the top handle was chipped off.  Now, what should I do with it?
