a) Pilot in cockpit (work 380) (1978) by H.R Giger
 

 
 
 
 
b) References Portrait of James Tissot (1868) of Edgar Degas (with the idea that it was referenced in the Tenniel illustration above)?

 
 
 
c) James Tissot (who would become the Walrus in Tenniel's illustration associated with the Space Jockey painting) becomes the seated space jockey with his arm on the right becoming the Space Jockey's ribcage?

 

 

d) Meanwhile the canvases and the easel on the ground on the right (which would become the carpenter in Tenniel's illustration) become the right side of the space jockey chair with the supports for the telescope
