Association made by me on 29th January 2015.  
I admit that I would have associated the engine 
design with a comical animal like thing some 
years ago as if it were some sort of a cute 
seahorse like thing looking smug.
This was-sceptre discovered in 1895 in  in the temple 
of set Ombos / Naqada, shown here on display at the 
Victoria and Albert museum in London.

Composition with alkaline glaze (faience).
Inscription naming pharaoh Amenhotep II 
(ruled 1427-1400 BC)
