I apologize for my contribution in things going off topic, but also put forth that I've also posted a lot on topic too. Many of the on topic stuff also may not have happened without the off topic stuff.

The third glyph on the statuette pictured above is for "h" or "Hh" right? A candle wick?
Perhaps easily confused (or not) with Heka, the deification of "magic force" or to "use or burn the Ka":
In Egypt the frog was most commonly associated with the goddess Heket (or Heqet), the goddess of fertility and childbirth who assisted Isis in her ritual to resurrect Osiris. Heket is depicted as a frog-shaped goddess, whose priestesses trained as midwives. They wore amulets, jewellery and other ornaments that bore her image. Frog shaped knives placed on to the bellies of pregnant women and newborn babies were believed to protect their youngsters. Frogs in general were so important to the early Egyptians they were often embalmed after death.
