Katy Perry's well-received Super Bowl performance kicked off with a mechanical lion created by a world-famous designer with local connections.  

Michael Curry, of Michael Curry Designs, a theatrical design and manufacturing company based in Scappoose, Ore., was the visionary behind the giant feline Katy straddled as she sang her pop hit "Roar." Curry kept the work secret until moments into the performance. 

Perry's half-time performance entrance was slightly reminiscent of Madonna's massive entrance at the 2012 Super Bowl, which Michael Curry and his team also had a hand in designing. 

Curry, perhaps best known for his design work on the stage version of Julie Taymor's "The Lion King,"  has been involved in several other high-profile projects for Disney, Cirque du Soleil, performances at the 2002 and 2010 Olympic Winter Games, and several other epic events.
