[Funny Math Art] Guess what's inside?

The surface in above image is a portion of the graph of
some mathematical equation.

Let's do some brainstorming:
Can you guess what's inside the surface?

I don't feel as if this is going to be especially helpful to you, but here it goes. I copied the image to a word document, and rotated it, looked at it from multiple angles, and etc. The best guess I'm coming up with, and this is a rather obvious guess, is that it's the framework for some sort of (possibly motorized) vehicle. If you figure it out, let us know.

Consider the intersection of a horizontal plane with the surface.

The intersection consists of a family of funny curves.
(An example curve is shown below.)

Cut off the upper surface above the horizontal plane
to get a funny 3D image.

Example curve:

(This curve is obtained from another surface.)
