Wasn’t that loosely what Be Quick or Be Dead was about? Or am I miss remembering again
Yes, obviously it stroke a chord with them. Also, 30 years later it's a weirdly specific and obscure reference, IMHO.
Besides that, what irks me the most is that Belshazzar's Feast and "Writing on the Wall" and so on are connected with the actual Belshazzar's feast, which yes, happened to a Babylonian king...
But the structure in the artwork, the tower, it seems to be the most a reinterpretation of the tower of Babel.
Those two are not the same story. You could also argue about whether "Babel" actually means "Babylon" (though for example, in Czech translations, it usually does)
If the connection is intended, it feels kinda sloppy and shallow and taking from small reference pools, IMHO. Like, "cool story from Babylon, bro. Let's throw in the Babylonian tower, too."
