The Ur-Homer Simpson?

I think I’ve discovered the first depiction of Homer Simpson.

From the Smithsonian’s Asian Art collection:

Having flown to the four oceans to perform devotions with the humiliated Ravana at his belt, Vali returns to Kiskindha and mockingly interrogates the raksas.
1597-1605, Kamal (Indian, Mughal dynasty)

The resemblance is too close to be a coincidence.

UPDATE: This is Nithya. The resemblance *is* too close to be a coincidence.
