This is the puppet created by Sasori from the body of Sunagakure's Third Kazekage. After being converted into human puppet, Sasori installed several weapons into his body. The efforts that Sasori went through to get the puppet made it his favourite. In the end, Sakura Haruno destroyed the puppet and in the anime, when Chiyo tried to use the head to attack Sasori, he simply incinerated it.
