I'm sorry but I just don't see the resemblance. Actually I'll be so bold as to submit that it is merely the result of the power of suggestion. The horses seem more artfully rendered in my opinion.
That is precicely the point I am making. Not Inga (see 1 and 2 above) but with enough shared characteristics to be a potential source of the rumour, repatedly cited in this thread, by power of suggestion: a theory to explain how such a rumour might have originated, and definitely not to suggest the mural would show Inga Ley in person.

We also agreed as to the lack of artistry. Appreciate your comment.

Here is a picture of Ley with his children in front of a portrait of their mother. This is a life size portrait but she obviously has her clothing on.

Yes, IMO the mural on the wall of his home was the basis for the story that Ley had a life size painting of Inga naked. That mural is the Goddess of Victory, with DAF sun wheel added along with the chariot. The same Goddess is atop the Victory column in Berlin.
