Some of these objects need to be contained in a three meter by three meter room under armed guard.

Just beautiful. The lion especially.

Wow. Just amazing. Usually I have an immediate visceral "No, god no" response when I see an animal depicted in metal (which also my describes my reaction to many steampunk articles, to be honest), but here it just works. I'm always delighted to find talented metal sculpture artists who obviously have honed their trade for decades. Freud's Horse is shiver-inducing, in terms of the attention to detail, but it's not nightmarish.

I like his style and I want one.

I wonder what the story is behind those squalling infants caught in cables, though.

Not a huge fan of steampunk, but these looks gorgeous.
