Russian textile or Atari 2600 game?

This image comes from the Art Institute of Chicago’s collection. It’s a piece of fabric created in 1927-1930 in Moscow by Sosnev Amalgamated Textile Mills.

It looks like an Atari 2600 game.

The copyright clearly says 1982. What’s impressive about the Moscow textile is that it was made in 1927.

It would be cool to see the Pitfall game recreated as a textile by Sosnev Amalgamated Textile Mills. AI can do that, right? I asked Dall-E to take the Pitfall image and use the color and textures from the textile image. This is what it generated.

Not exactly what I wanted.
