Looks like it's supposed to be a ghichak, which can optionally have a skin face or be a solid box.
But checking Google image search, apparently ghichaks having the pegs be on the front like that is not conventional - ghichaks have sideways pegs – and possibly unheard of. I think of vertical pegs being more conventional of African rather than Asian instruments, though I wouldn't swear to it; a quick google search of African banjos shows vertical pegs, but usually coming in from the back.
Also, a ghichak is supposed to have more than that one has of a stick pointing out of the bottom, which is functional – like the foot of a cello. By resting the instrument on that point, it gets the body up off the floor or the player's lap, so the box can resonate freely.
Ghichaks come in a wide variety of body shapes, the most famous being the double-bowl, but, really, any box on a stick will do.
Yours is awfully pretty, but it seems pretty odd. If it is supposed to be a ghichak, perhaps it is meant as a display-only item.
P.S. Also see gusle (Serbian) which at least has vertical pins, though coming in from the back, and morin khuur (Mongolian).
