Here is my attempt:

I doubled the image, rotated the copy, work a bit with transparent, 
contrast and brightness and it clearly looks as the mageia wallpaper.

So, we can be sure, that the wallpaper is a derivative work of the one 
on deviantart.com. However, we should confront Luiz with this. Who will 
do this?
