Roger Vadim's Barbarella's Excessive Machine
references the Henu Barque ?

leading from

a) If there is a connection, it might be roughly compared to Henu barques but the way it's been adapted would be very abstract as with a lot of these things and I decided on May 7th, 2017, that there surely was one.



b) This would mean the fan at the back of the Barque becomes the vertical slits on the side of the machine, and the horns would become this round screen behind the machine. Perhaps the slits going up along the top of the machine to the head are from the upper part of the barque's pillars from the Papyrus of Ani perhaps . so Barbarella's head would be where the top falcon head would be.

b) Of course there is this other Barque to take into consideration with Papyrus of Ani, and perhaps a few more. I'm obviously looking at the pipes leading from the excessive machine to the ceiling and the rope that hanging between the fan and the pillar on this Henu Barque. But nothing is conclusive.
