those pesky Christian missionaries were shameless and distributed 
images like these partly as an excuse to rush in and convert folks by 
whatever means. TISK! the ethnicity of the alleged cannibal seems 
"generic bad Botticelli Venus" and the dog, the dog IS a Xolo, they 
are very variable, some being much smaller than others, and SOME 
being very WOOLY.  I wonder if the circular object in the basket is 
a  head with orange hat.....   the bundle of salad concealing the 
pubis is a nice touch, a bouquet garni of sorts. rather as if she has 
been to the local supermarket food shopping and said, "gimme a 
melanistic head and some Caucasoid extremities, please.

However, we ARE impressed by the anatomic accuracy of the dog. the 
detailing of the paws, the tail tip....the artist was clearly focused 
in interest on the dog, of all the other things in the picture.
