a) Jean Delville's Treasures of Satan (1895)
 
 
 





 
b)  Illustration of a Mycenaean lentoid showing a sacred palm and wild goat from Palaeokastro in Crete.
 
Here is the image from "The Mycenaean Tree and Pillar Cult and Its Mediterranean Relations" by Arthur Evans published in 1901. 
 
When was this lentoid dug up? I don't know but I think that Jean Delville had seen it by 1894.
 
 
 

 
 

 

 

 

 

c) The two side by side with the lentoid image reversed





d) We might start with the plant that becomes the underwater tree like form on the right.



   


e) The goat's horns become the tentacle like wings. The dog's eye becomes the head of the Satan. I suppose the neck becomes this cloth like form wrapped around the arm and extending downwards before the Satan figure

 
 
 
f) The main body of the dog and the tail become the left set of the pile of bodies while the goats legs become the right side of the bodies. 
 
The legs of the dog connecting as well as the goats legs in view of the way they connect like a rough sketch inspire the way the limbs of the human are layed out.
 

 

 g) The glyph like form perhaps becomes the rock in the distance on the left
