Giger's The Spell IV references The Master Eye from #3 of The Demon, 1972?

The Master Eye from #3 of Jack Kirby's The Demon, 1972


The ancient idol known as the Master Eye from #3 of The Demon, 1972 , with its vague impression of a  Baphomet in the centre made from reflecting chaotically zigzagging lines.

It sits on a podium which had long slanting arms either side supporting the bulky sides of the idol, which Giger turns into crouching women.

The likeness between the two images is only vague but one might ask if perhaps it helped Giger to generate idea since a illustration in the comic book inspired ideas for his paintings.
