Hammerpede artwork in the background of the hand construction?

Not sure if this was posted or discussed before but I was studying the construction of the xeno hand a bit and I noticed some paper on the desk in the background that looked like hammerpede artwork to me.

I could be wrong.

If its something else,what could it be?

Good eye! 

Also, what's etched in the wooden stand that the hands are on?

I was trying to figure out what was on those sheets in the background! Good eye, it certainly could be! Remember, there was talk of a Trilobite being on-set months ago, so there might be more Hammerpedes as well!

Great work, dude! This looks to be what you are saying. Should look into what role they will play in the new film. But, if it is not a hamerpede, the only thing I think it could be is a chestburster.

Those hands doesnt belong to Xeno creature!

If you pay attention you will notice the head construction and there is even an illustration of that head left from "hamerpade illustration". The back of the head is made from grey plasticine and front is red.

 

I heard that we are going to see creature superior to Engineers. All things we saw in ampule room (mural, relief, altar, emerald crystal...) are not random. I have a confirmation of this! Maybe we shall see some explanations after all.

You're right, the events and materials discovered in Prometheus were not random, nor a coincidence. As for beings superior to Engineers, I recall hearing that as well. It will be very exciting to see what else gets revealed as we lead up to the first trailer!

DARK NEBULA - Very compelling! As an aside, does the cutting board say "Numi" in white lettering? :)

Its not NUMI! :) Carved word is NOB (from Noble) synonym word is dignitary !!!! Before the word there is a number 1. I leave to your imagination the meaning behind this name. :)

There is an illustration showing red face and there is a model behind with red plasticine... maybe its the creatures head in the phase of construction. Either way it doesnt look like conventional Xeno at all...

Looks like it. Good pick up! BTW has anyone else noticed that the hamerpede looks a lot like the Xeno Queens dorsal spines? I'll true to find a pic!

Yeah, I saw elsewhere, the other day, that someone pointed out that could be a Hammerpede image in the background ... therefore if it is the red sculpture may well be of that Hammerpede itself then ... or something else entirely ...

@ Enoch ... definitely no B in the carved word on the modellers board ...

@Something Real ... I see what you mean ... no M though and the 'll' dosen't have a slant connection to create an N ... that would've been great if it did, NUMI (Noomi)... which would've given a nice clue to her being turned into an alien :) ...

Resized carving image:

llun-1?

Or at 180 degeress rotation:

1-noll?

Its Nob. ;)

Sorry Enoch I cannot see the 'll' being a 'B' ... if it's supposed to be a B then its a really bad one ... I can't see why they couldn't have made it a bit more obvious ... if that was the case ... ;) ... and in what language is that supposed to be, if it is 1-Noble? ...

ENOCH333 and GEM]n[ - Oh! Thank you both ever so much for helping to clarify that image! This is most helpful! :)

Hopefully, I never really understood the Hammerpede at all except for that it might explain the goo. What was the purpose of it? Is it related to the Xeno? Is it a monster that the Engineers play a role in when it comes to its creation and how? What I do remember about it is that it is connected to the foolish things that Fifield and Milburn did (duh!). Unfortunately there is a cut scene at Youtube that would have made that scene make so much more sense but they left it out, that was really dumb.

Chris Picard: It would be really interesting to see another Trilobite in Alien Covenant. The Trilobite was one of the good things about Prometheus. You wrote that what happened in Prometheus was no coincidence well I think that they need to explain things better in Alien Covenant that also have ties to Prometheus because a lot of things didn’t make sense in Prometheus.

Hammerpedes were just an example of what the black goo is capable of doing.I assume that the black goo contains xenomorph dna because the hammerpedes got acid for blood and possess great strenght,and have very quick regeneration(Ik xeno's don't have regeneration) I wonder if Deacon can regenerate too.

About the Fifield,some guy from the making of Prometheus said that whatever happened to the engineer's head that they found in the pyramid (it exploded) will happen to Fifield at some point,he is losing himself to an alien within him.

Soo Fifield was an example of what would happen to us if the engineers released the black goo 2000 years ago if they didn't lost control of it.

I hope that we might get to see the black goo in Alien covenant,if yes then we might also see more hammerpedes and other black goo creatures like in comic books fire and stone rather than just xeno's jumping around killing people.

Im wondering if David when he came to the engineer planet infected some engineer with the black goo because he wanted to see what would happen and started the whole chaos.

(If he managed to trick them like he did with Holloway)

Dark Nebula: That is interesting but don't you think that the Engineers would be more cautious about the Goo since they probably more aware about it and what it can do?

Well they had an outbreak or release during the final stages of weaponization, those canisters look like flat nose projectiles that they could deliver to a planet while in orbit. They made the perfect weapon too perfect and they lost the heads over the deal. :)

What if its not a hammerpede but a king cobra that was infected?

the writing looks like Knoll, knull, llony or lluny or something.

There are some heads in the background too.

Interesting find...

Seems to look like Hamerpedes yes.. or related..

Is this the case who knows.... maybe the Worms are not indigenous to LV-223 but they got there via Engineers from Paradise?

Maybe David decides to take some from LV-223 before he sets off?

We just dont know what connection that image has but it does look similar... but we also dont understand what the Black Goo is.... could it be made from Worms? or is there some Organism related?

Remember Holloways Eye Worm?  What if the Goo in the Urns that David had on his finger is not Goo but a collection of micro organisms, nano worms.. thus its the same as Spaights Nano Scarabs....

But how can Nano Worms be like a Goo.. well Sperm are like mini Hammerpedes are they not? But Sperm looks like a Goo too.

Maybe the Goo contains a Parasite that can then grow.. like Holloways Eye worm and this is what we see in that image?

"have very quick regeneration(Ik xeno's don't have regeneration) I wonder if Deacon can regenerate too."

Who knows.. from what i looked at into the movie, was these Worms are well Space Worms but maybe are similar to Earth Worms..   and they can regrow their body parts.. like a Worm Can.

The Black Goo, infected the Worms with Xeno related DNA, passed on Xeno traits (Acid Blood) while Evolving the Organisms best natural Traits (Regeneration)

"the Engineers would be more cautious about the Goo since they probably more aware about it and what it can do?"

Maybe the Engineers had stolen the Goo or re-weaponized it from something stolen...

It could be they was tasked with using the Goo to Sacrifice themselves by command of the Hierarchy, the Engineers or a Faction then rebelled against this like the Igigi did against the Annunaki....   

They then chose to re-engineer the Goo to create something to use on their Creators and their creators Chosen Children?

I found an image. I have the Halcyon model, but it's in storage at the moment. When I 1st saw the Hamerpede I instantly thought of the Queens dorsal spines. They are similar.

I appreciate this is the second thread which has discussed the hand. Two things occur to me :-

1) If you tense your own hand there are definitely similarities between the bone structure of the mould and a human hand but much larger.

2) The curious pen scratch could be an stick emblem for a hand then N0/1.

If there is as I expect a key transition in Noomi's story which is connected to the pathway of the "evolving creature", we maybe looking at part of it.

The proportions are in % ratio if compared to human to belong to something 8ft tall.

Which is what typically a Xeno grows upto... off course they may have elongated hands but the other dimensions such as width of the hand would make it 8ft still
