I've always loved this inlay and its surrealist touch.

The Halls of the Things cover was by Dave De Leuw.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halls_of_the_Things

I think some of the other Crystal covers (such as The Dungeon Master, Bug Blaster, The Island, Invasion of the Body Snatchas, Cosmic Guerilla and It's the Wooluf!) were also by him, as their style matches, but I haven't been able to confirm this.

Sometimes Mobygames is useful for finding artists.

As to Invasion for the Body Snatchas (in the credits section) it says 'artist: Dave de Leuw':

Clicking on his names comes to a list of games he collaborate with, and also appears Rommels Revenge.

Robocop - Mike Bryan

Battle Command - Gary McNamara.(but apparently only used for the ad, not the inlay)
