I wasn't convinced of the Catfish similarity. Cat fish have
their fins at mid body (called mid-wing on airplanes) not on the
bottom. The vertical 'fin' is too oversized to account for fish
similarity, artistic license aside.

Asking why the wings were curved for the flying model is like
asking why and kid's toy is not aerodynamic. Necessary for a
slow model, not for a jet. A 3/4 inch, 4x8 sheet of plywood will
fly at 30 miles an hour from the short runway of a 69 Meteor car
roof I learned this 40 years ago.

The curls in front might depict turbulence ahead of the leading
edge but I doubt it. The vertical 'stabilizer' intrigues me more
than anything. Do the lines denote stiffeners. Where's the
dorsal fin if this is supposed to depict a fish. They all have
dorsal fins.

A lot of the explanations offered were good. Not this one. Also
the chisel explanation was glossed over. They added this metal
and that  to make their chisels, the same metal used the same as
tie-clips to hold stone blocks together.

I watched a documentary once where these same ties were
discussed because metallurgical engineers wondered how these
people managed to come up with this alloy which modern metal
making didn't invent  at Bethel Steel until 1939.

This place on the ancient shore of Titicaca was dated at 17,000
years in this doc.

I don't know if this accurate. But if so how did metal workers
back then come up with chisels hard enough to work stone without
chisel marks?

Just more to confuse things.
