this frozen wheel looks a whole lot like a pirate ships steering wheel, the black rock's steering wheel to be exact, now the captain of this ship i believe is richard alpert. i think that when his ship crashed he was found, and instructed by jacob to build and dig up the well, and richard did with the help of his crew then he and the crew placed the wheel where jacob asked them to, and in return richard was given everlasting life.
