17th Century Surrealist Characters

Giovanni Battista Bracelli’s etchings depict humanoid figures made of fences, chains, chests of drawers, paddles, pots and pans...

I could imagine them as possible encounters for anything from Warhammer to Doctor Who. Animated objects in the style of The Sorcerer’s Apprentice? Automata constructed from whatever’s handy? Hearth spirits needing something like hands?
