Giger's Stillbirth Machine III (1977) inspired by Fuchs "Samson finds the carcass of the lion (1961) etc...?

leading from

Giger's Stillbirth Machine III (1977)

a) comparisons to Ernst Fuchs "Samson finds the carcass of the lion" (1961)
Giger's Stillbirth Machine bears similarities to Ernst Fuchs "Samson finds the carcass of the lion" from 1961. What there is to point out here that we have a series of vertical phallic prongs like some sort of a candelabra.

b) Comparison's to "Adam's Destruction and Promise"
I would also make the suggestion that Giger went ahead and merged it with ideas inspired by "Adam's Destruction and Promise" which shows angels wings in the form that resemble inverted parted legs and above the glowing human body that may have been transformed into the exterior mecahnical womb
