HR Giger's "Witches Dance" references
Wifredo Lam's The Eternal Present
(An Homage to Alejandro García Caturla) (1944)


leading from
and
HR Giger's Witches Dance (1977)
a) Wifredo Lam's The Eternal Present, painted in 1944 reveals itself to be a reinterpretation of Otto Dix's "Skat Players- Card Playing War Invalids" (1920) which appears to be one of the other sources of reference for HR Giger's "Witches Dance". 

Wifredo Lam's The Eternal Present (An Homage to Alejandro García Caturla) (1944)

b) Dali's Daddy "Longlegs of The Evening - Hope" that also appears to reference Dix's painting along with Delville's Treasures of Satan which Dix's painting also appears to reference, was painted a few years earlier in 1940 (see: Dali's Daddy Longlegs Of The Evening - Hope)
