I seem to remember similar engraving on Star and Llama pistols. Might the engraving have been done in Spain?

In general and with the grip-panels in particular, It looks like a Mexican Bar-B-Que gun to me. And I intend that in all of the best ways. I'd be ALL OVER that piece if it inspected well in-hand.

We see much the same fairly often here in Border country. They draw damn-high money for the competition existing with Mexican Cowboys. Weirdly - or not - elsewhere in the country the demand/desire is significantly less.

On first-blush, I'd say the engraving is custom and the panels were bought separately.
