Silence of the Lambs, The Easter Egg - Red Dragon Hidden in the Silence of the Lambs Poster Art

The Silence of the Lambs poster and cover art contain a re-coloured image of William Blake's Red Dragon.

The Red Dragon was printed in the inside cover of Thomas Harris's novel of the same name.

If you look closely at the moth's wings you can see a creased and folded image of the Red Dragon painting.

To make a comparison you can visit these sites:
(Harris fan site featuring various paintings)
(Features a range of posters and covers)

The pictures on the veerjeen site don't show the wings too closely but if you look carefully you can make out the image.

The best picture on that page in terms of contrast and clarity is probably the "Starling and Lecter Poster".
