In the manifold physical planes that I have created for my D&D games, there is one that holds a curious little world named Damnus by those forced to live there. It is a cursed world, held in the hideous reality warping gaze of planetary planar corrosives and ancient, dead artifice. When I first started to detail the world, I thought "Deadwood and Dragons", and...well, it's horrible.
Anyway, this thing would fit nicely into that world. Its not based on anything really, other than the idea of a totem being made from old guns, and animated with the souls of slain gunsligers, because...it's cool!
