After the meshed structure, you can draw a larger oval structure over the first oval structure.and a long isosceles triangle facing upwards underneath the larger structure. This triangle should have a severed flat tip touching the cylindrical or rectangular handle that will be underneath. After and inside the first triangle, draw another isosceles triangle with a flat top, to double the first triangle. Put the severed flat top of the second triangle on the same line as the first triangle making the line a bit thicker and a bit curved.
