The classic pov for this type of image, Moira.
And in this century it would be so easy to find fake people to toss. Or fake tossers even.Smile

Looks like a king of pair of pliers or tooth extraction device. Good composition against that sky.

I thought sheep tossing was a Welsh sport...Blush

Your image and description remind me of one of Gustav Vigeland's statues in Oslo which, to the uninitiated, appears to represent an adult kicking a baby.
See first image under the header...
