The Blackpool Tower Circus illustration for The Radio Times for August 24th 1974

a) Realisation
August 25th 2018, on Graeme Wood's Twitter page, I noticed that a Radio Times page with an illustration for for the Blackpool Tower Circus had been posted. I realised immediately that Giger had somehow seen it and decided to reference it in one of his paintings. After a while that day I came to the realisation that it would have been Cabinet Door For Mia (work 414) from 1979. Below are the comparisons to be made
Two images side by side. Radio Times illustration reversed, next to Giger's painting.

b) Two seals
The two seals becomes a pair of dildos while the snout of the higher up of the pair becomes a tongue like form between Mia's legs. 
The clowns nose becomes the general position of Mia's genital area but the seal's head intersecting with the clown's smile also becomes the buttocks



c) Bowler Hat and banne

The outer circle around the words on the poster and brim of the bowler hat becomes a pair of horns coming out of the side of Mia's head. The crown of the bowler hat also becomes Mia's hair.








d) Elephants
Elephant trunks become a warped bottle like form coming out of an orifice in the top of a head like form on the head with a forehead split like a pair of buttocks which would also be based on the head of an elephant.





e) Upper left corner 
The black hair with a white space in it on a woman on the upper left becomes a grinning face.The R in 'Tower" becomes a sickle like hook.


f)  Upper right corner
The upper right tendril ribbon outside the circle containing the worlds becomes becomes a horn like form extending from an animal face , and perhaps the hand beneath a sickle like form beneath.
