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. You can have a close shot while clicking on the head.
