Alien: HR Giger's Alien Life Cycle Hieroglyphics references Dürer's "Adoration of the Magi" via Degas' "The Promenade on Horseback via Tenniels' "The Borogoves, Toves and the Raths" for Alice Through The Looking Glass via Fuchs' "Job and the Judgement of Paris"?

a) Summary

The idea here is that a lineage of images starts with "Adoration of the Magi" by Albrecht Dürer
This painting would have been referenced in Edgar Degas' "The Promenade by Horseback".
Both  of these images would have been referenced in "The Borogoves, Toves and the Raths" from Alice 
Through The Looking Glass (1871) by John Tenniel,
Meanwhile Ernst Fuchs would reference Dürer's painting and the Tenniel in his painting "Job and the judgement of Paris " (1966)
Then  HR Giger's appears to absorb both Tenniel's piece and Fuchs' in this case into his "Alien Life Cycle Hieroglyphics" composition


b) See: The Promenade on Horseback (1868) Edgar Degas references Adoration of the Magi (1503 approx) by Albrecht Dürer?
