  [Aroid-l] Taro
From: criswick at spiceisle.com (criswick) on 2007.09.28 at 11:09:12(16352)
In my opinion the depiction is merely inaccurate in portraying a taro leaf
(Colocasia) because the artist was working more from memory than life. The
pineapple top and coconut trees are similarly memorized.

So it is a generalized image, like the term "Elephant Ear", and may have
suggestions of Xanthosoma as well as of Colocasia.
