HR Giger's Vlad Tepes : Cruella de Vil/Cruel devil

leading from
Giger's "Vlad Tepes" (1978)
and 
Walt Disney


On the right Cruella De Vil has lost her skin and the fur of her collar, and is left as a dark being is baring its sharp fangs and has a bulbous collar with tendrils hanging from either side and he is being pierced through his body with a large spike.

This spike could well be said to be following the path of the spike that extends from the female's elbow which penetrates the other dark character. Floating above him, a disk filled with spikes.

At the end of its tale is a U shaped pincer and once it has gripped an item, it shoves a metal spike into it to break it open.

This configuration is a popular structure in the painting that repeats itself in various ways.
