Giger's ZDF references Tomita's Bolero 12 inch cover

After Isao Tomita's death on the 5th of May was reported on the 8th May 2016. Days later  on the13th of May 2016, I suddenly realised that Tomita's Bolero album cover was being referenced in ZDF, a woman holding a long elongated object, perhaps the bars of music,  amidst the wavy forms that could be a river in a virtual landscape. Giger merged his final painting with ideas inspired by elements of the Pakal Votan tomb lid design as well.
