This is 'Metal Circus' by Alain Signori, created using scrap metal, full of character, and yet somehow quite threatening and totally wonderful. It reminded me of the inventiveness and creativity of Calder and Klee
I love your description of being quite wonderful and threatening at the same time. Love the lion biting the pink man.
It is a very threatening pink and the lions mouth is like a wrench, :-) a fantastically scary image.
