c) References "Girl and Beast" (1941) by Injy Efflatoun (Egyptian Surrealist) ?

The unlikely suggestion is that the tree and the flying creature merged together to become the jelly fish and the island became the shipwreck, merged with other ideas, but this also hangs on the idea that this painting by Efflatoun was recognised as being a little bit inspired by Wyndham Lewis' Battery Shelled.

d) Herge's Unicorn Shipwreck also references Wyndham's Battery Shell?



d.i) For instance the group of men in the centre become the sea weed in the centre of HergĂ©'s drawing. 

Lower soldier helmets become corals. 

One of the men to the left, holding a cigarette becomes Tintin in a diving suit pulling the rope.

A slanting wall becomes the a rope being pulled.


d.iii) The shape of the cloud of smoke and the shipwreck
