Alberto Becattini in an article included in Zio Paperone #106 gives a couple
of examples:

National Geographic April 1940 and October 1941 --> Donald Duck and the
Mummy Ring (Four Color Comic #29, September 1943)

There are some pictures fom those issues and the ispiration from them for
the story is clear.
