None of the other glyphs categorically said Khufu.
Vyse dearly wanted one of them to say Khufu but that was not the case.
So therefore Vyse decided to paint a new glyph, which did, as far as he knew at the time say "Khufu".
Vyse studied the existing original glyphs and noticed that they contained random splashes.
He therefore incorporated "random splashes" into his new Khufu cartouch in order to make it appear more authentic.
This, and other anomalies indicates that he was not an expert forger.
Vyse knew this, but if the cartouch was only ever going to be viewed by dim oil lamp light and would never be photographed it did not concern him .
The "Vyse cartouch random splashes" are not splashes. They have been applied using a paint brush.
The "Two Dots" are meant to signify something.
The "random splashes" are not.
Only Vyse knew this at the time
(Or possibly Vyse was not sure about the two dots, so therefore sought to introduce ambiguity).
Therefore he did not incorporate the "random splashes" into any drawings or any of the artworks claimed to represent this cartouche.
He, and only he, knew that they were irrelevant.
This applies to drawings and artworks made before or after the "cartouche was painted"
At least one other original and ancient glyph has been retouched but not altered, using the same painting technique.
All of this is based upon modern photographs.
If I could access the chamber for one hour, equipped with colour balanced lighting, I could determine whether or not forensic testing should be carried out.
