What's that made of? Wood? Some kind of plaster? Or, wait, maybe melamine? The cracks do remind me of some old dinner plates I used to have.
Foam rubber with a heavy layer of paint. The rubber is slowly rotting thus causing the long dried paint to crack with a "dried lake bed" pattern. One can see the same "aging" upon Harryhausen's animation figures.

Sincerely,

Bill
