Alien: Inspiration for Space Jockey
platform from Giger's Necronomicon

leading from
Giger's Witches Dance (work 341)
Two dancing witches either side of a urinal on a circular platform, they travel around with wheels connected to the ankles of each one's visible leg that enables them to travel around  the circular ribbed grooves of the platform. Both the witches have fan like biomechanic head dresses. After years of looking at the painting, on April 28th 2015, it occurrs to me that we have the ingredients to come  together to form the space jockey platform, with the circular base and the fan like structures merging together
