Dating approx. mid century ( 1960's -70 ). It is signed SANTORA ? as seen in the pictures. Reminds me of a Jere and Higgins mix.

The iron are nails, used for nailing floorboards.
Not my area of expertise but looks familiar.

Knew it looked familiar. Just come across a similar on on the flickriver website, titled Marc Weinstein Wall Sculpture II
Google images " flickriver Marc Weinstein Wall Sculpture II " and you'll see it.
