20th century works inspired by the Henu Barque?

leading from: 

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
