Can the 5 Wisdoms be correlated with the Six Perfections? Has anyone ever seen this?

Its said that without the Paramita of Wisdom, the other five perfections will be lacking and will be unable to be truly transcendent actions. The Paramita of Wisdom is inseparable from the Five Wisdoms, since if you don't have the latter, you won't have the former (Perfection of Wisdom). Furthermore all Five Wisdoms relate individually to each transcendent perfection. For example, the Perfection of Generosity could be hindered by any of the five poisons, such as anger, desire, ignorance, jealousy or pride. The ability to transmute that poison into one of the Wisdoms would allow ones Generosity to act without these stains.

I have come across a few teachings that mention something like Ratnasambhava is associated with generosity and Amitabha is associated with meditation. It almost seems then like Akshobya could be associated with patience, Amagosidhhi associated with endeavor, and Vairochana associated with wisdom. Not sure about ethical discipline.

I'm just wondering if something like this has been taught anywhere because in Jigme Lingpa's Treasury of Precious Qualities he associated the 5 wisdoms with the 4 immeasurables as being equalizing and dharmadhatu wisdom as equanimity, mirror like wisdom as love, discriminating wisdom as compassion, and all accomplishing wisdom as sympathetic joy.
