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

 

 

 

b) Illustration from a page from the Codex Tudela (Origin 1530–1554 − Valley of Mexico)  

I had noticed that the codex image reminded me of Giger's Alien Monster IV and that seemed to be a merger of numerous compositions relating to Treasures of Satan in different ways. 

So I  wonder if Jean Delville had got to see one of the various copy versions of the Codex to take note of it


 

 

c) Comparable areas 


 

 

d) The eye becomes the fabric wrapped around the arm, while the spewed blood becomes the trail of fabric running down in front of the Satan's head

 

 

 
 

e) The head fan becomes the tentacle like wings

 

 

 

f) The tendril like hair at the back becomes the end of the tentacle at the rear of the Satan, while the ear ring becomes his rear

 

 


 

 g) The pink area of the face becomes the torso and head of the Satan
