The Adventures of Tintin : The Professor Calculus Affair " p38 (Comic book story drawn from 1954-1956) by Hergé

leading from

a) References the Henu Barque once more.
The boat itself becomes he curb of pavement/sidewalk around the shop in the upper right.

The white pillows or pile of sand become the hood on the horse cart.

The lower kestrel head becomes the horse's head.

The pillars and the vertical lines between them become the shutters on the front of the shop and the three rudders become the side window (or even the three posters, can't really goth far).

The head of the crouching man becomes the statue on the far left, his collar becomes round curb around it.

The skirt becomes the brown and white cows to the bottom left.

Perhaps this means that the boat with the Oyrx horns becomes the zig zagging trail of the brown car and he road going off the right side..

The vertical rod becomes the string of sausages draped over the front of the brown car.

Perhaps this means that the beaded rope hanging down has become a pile of carpets being blown into the air.

b) References Gainsborough's Mrs and Mrs Andrews (1748)? 

The man's stocking become the running cows. 

The shadow on the front of his jacket becomes the horse. 

Arm of chair becomes the curb.
