Interesting ICEBREAKER art

Flipping through some old German fanzines, I came across this interesting artwork for John Gardner's third James Bond novel, Icebreaker.

The artwork is similar to the UK hardcover in that it is Choppingesque, but is very different in design. The UK cover shows the skeleton hand pinned beneath a wooden plank clutching a broken ski pole. This art shows the hand clutching dandelions against an Iron Cross background.

Could this have been a rejected cover design that was then used for adverts?

Don't know much about this, and this is the best image I have. Does anyone have a better one?
