The configuration of women's bodies is taken from the Salvador Dali work, "In Voluptate Mors."

The two females on the bottom on sitting down, facing away from the viewer, holding their arms above their heads, which are being held by the third female at the top. The link to www.scene360 shows it really well. I believe that is a Dali painting...

If you look on the butterfly that is covering her mouth--the head of the butterfly is a small skull. Look closely--the skull is made up of 3 naked women al holding hands in a circle....

Actually that's William Blake's painting the Red Dragon, which is a reference to the killer from the book of the same name, the prequel to Silence of the Lambs.
