19th-21st century works inspired by the Henu Barque?

I have to say that I am compiling a list of various things from Art, Scifi, Horror and Adventure comic books and films that for some reason might have something to do with the Henu Barque.

Excuse me if I am wrong about these, but for me they carry a feeling of connection with the idea of one, and so I'm going along with the explorations.

It's running along as if this thing is part of a secret conspiracy, but perhaps there are other things that have put it into focus, such as magazine articles, exhibitions etc to do with Ancient Egyptian culture

a)  See: Jean Delville's Treasures of Satan (1894)


b) Martian fighting machines from War of the Worlds by Henrique Alvim Correi (1906)

c) The Skat Players by Otto Dix (1920)

d) Celebes by Max Ernst (1921)

e) See: Henu Barque at the Hollywood Egyptian Theatre (1922)

x) "Le Maior découvre le rêve 173" (This image was revealed in 2012) 
A drawing by Jean Giraud A.K.A "Moebius" titled "Le Maior découvre le rêve 173" displayed  on his funeral invitation that appears to echo the idea of The Space Jockey in his seat in the form of a human face resting on a high shoe heel, and maybe the oars of the Henu Barque have become holders for the stick of substance with thread on the side.

y) Jzy Tilos' "The Nature of My Creatures" 
Whether Jzy Tilos  (source: Fantastic Art of Facebook) meant to create a picture which showed something reminiscent of the Henu Barque or not,  the thing has crept into this bizarrely imaginative painting, with the white areas between the antelope head and three vertical beams of frame holding the Barque being transformed into humans , the horizontal rod is turned into a selfi stick, and the three vertical beams have transformed into a row of pipes at the bottom. Perhaps the flat of skin beneath the reptile head from the lower right materialised from the space between the crouched man in the right corner's white clothing and the box holding the frame.
