Hanging Sculpture

No idea what is that name of this piece or why it's hanging in Zurich's main train station. I do know the bright colors make it pop against the ceiling.

Edit: A friend informed me the piece is named 'Guardian Angel'.

Thanks guys.

@gerry13 A friend identified the artist as Niki de Saint Phalle. This is one of her Nana statues she started making in 1956. Her impact and influence is widespread
@graemestevens That would definitely be an attention grabber. Googling her name and 'nana' found small versions on Etsy, eBay, and Amazon. https://www.dailyartmagazine.com/niki-de-saint-phalle-nana-statues/

Yes, Niki de Saint Phalle. She has a number of sculptures at the Stravinsky Fountain in the Chatelet area of Paris. A colourful lady!

@jamibann I've never heard of that fountain. Thanks, it's now on my list for my next visit to Paris.
