Tintin et Haddock portant un fer à cheval

a) A curiosity turned up on November 13th, 2020. Planete Tintin on Facebook posted the image of Tintin and Captain Haddock carrying a giant horseshoe.
This image was created somewhere between 1940-1949 by Hergé, separate from the actual stories.
I might start wondering if someone had dug up an ancient relic that represented the Juggernaut from Prometheus and were taking it home.

b) I suppose I can't decide whether there is really a connection to be made, but I have seen a great deal of influence from Tintin in the Prometheus story.
I might wonder if this contributed to Ridley's Juggernaut being much more direction horseshoe shaped than the old derelict ship was.
