This is an industrial artefact, supposedly an anchor, although the flukes are very strange, lying on a disc that has both organic and inorganic elements.The work is square. The lower corner of the anchor lies at the golden section of the vertical and horizontal dimension and also on the diagonal that runs from lower left to upper right.
