 "The top of the barque carries two heads, of which a head of
oryx turned toward the back. The oryx was considered
like 

an animal of Seth and its sacrifice allowed the moon to 
cross the sky. (J.P. Corteggiani) Notice the birds and fish 
also all along the hooked shaft. On the sleigh, a falcon. "
