'Did you spot the connection?

“And I looked, and behold, a pale horse! And its rider’s name was Death, and Hades followed him. And they were given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by wild beasts of the earth.”

Death on a Pale Horse by Gustave Doré (1865)

David, Alien: Covenant (2017)'

----------------------------------------------

'“scorched, barren earth, devoid of any life as far as the eye can see.” is how James Snyder,(Northern Renaissance Art: Painting, Sculpture, the Graphic Arts from 1350 to 1575) described the painting.

The Triumph of Death by Pieter Bruegel the Elder (1562) (detail)

455 years between the two

Death of Ledward in Alien: Covenant (2017)'

----------------------------------------------

'Alien: Covenant’s homage to Eisenstein’s revolutionary editing techniques used in the filming of Battleship Potemkin, the silent film’s scene resulted in an un-precedentedly horrifying and stunning spectacle, charged with political meaning.

These same methods were used to film the scene of the pathogen drop, alternating between David’s view of the city and the view of the ship from below where the Engineers gathered.'

'A creepy stone creature perched on Chapel Portugal in Saint-Jean-de-Boiseau. Does it look like a Xenomorph to you?'

Talking about Portugal...

Stone Egg from the Algarve, claimed to be many Thousands of years old... kind of reminds me of the Alien Covenant Eggs ;)
