Yeah its the image in the middle of the moths head, apparantly its taken from a Dali picture, and i wanted to see the original picture that Dali did.

Cheers for any help,


If you look at the picture of the death'shead moth on the cover of the movie box the skull is actually made up of naked women, it's a symbol of the antagonist's victims. The configuration of women's bodies is taken from the Salvador Dali work, "In Voluptate Mors."
