a) The paintings Necronom II (1976) by HR Giger, and "Deposition from the Cross" (1600-1604) by Caravaggio.
I suddenly noticed that "Deposition from the Cross" (1600-1604) by Caravaggio was coming up as a painting that Moebius had referenced in a Starwatcher drawing from 1987 that seems to have nothing to do with this Necronom II painting as far as I can see so far, but it led me to realising that Giger ought to have taken note of it earlier in 1976.
At this time I'm noticing more connections between Giger's and classic paintings.

b) The areas to be compared seem to stretch from the centre to the right.
c) In terms of the right biomechanoid face seen from the side, the man in the orange robe's arm become the tendon connecting the upper and lower parts of the front of the mouth.
His back becomes the area of skin under the front of the dome.
Christ's legs become the phallic tongue
d) The head of the man in the orange robe becomes the jaw hinge.
e) Christ's dangling arm becomes the left curve of the jaw, his ribs become the teeth
