[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.

The example curve has nothing to do with the answer.

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.
