Why that book cover?

Since various people have asked me why I chose the painting by van der Waay as cover for Codex Oera Linda, here are two fragments that I was thinking of. There were more reasons, but the fragments alone should be enough justification. (Click on the fragments for larger view.)
1b. Adela's Advice, p. 26
13h. Apollania's Burg, p.154
