Re: [Aroid-l] Aroid art and recipe

Hi Julius, I found him using Google Image, it's Albert Eckhout, if I'm looking at the correct photo- it is VERY disturbing. I didn't see any Aroids... but the thing at her heels looks like the "Chupacabra" they found in Mexico


And what is with the bruises all over her?

Dear Susan,

I too wondered at the 'dead air" after my posting--no bother, you can`t win
'em all.
For those of us who MIGHT be interested, the painting which appeared in the
Sept. 2007 issue of "Smithsonian" mag. on page 79, is by a Dutch artist,
Albert Ecckhout, c. 1641 (!!!!!!), and is of a Brazilian Yapua "Indian"
Good Growing,

Here is his recipe- yikes~!
Julius, what was the name of the painting?

Aha! A NEW recipe comes to mind!---
''Soup/calaloo of immature Xanthosoma leaves, cooked together
with neighbor`s arm and fingers, and boiled with 'chubas' of Xanthosoma,
with roasted and peeled Montrichardia 'nuts' floated on the side".
Desert --- a calabash-bowl of ripened and "river-chilled" Monstera deliciosa
fruit, mixed with sun-ripened 'pois doux', a-la-cart." !!!
NEXT year`s I.A.S. banquet in Miami can`t come around fast enough!! "Bon
appitite" to all!

Good Growing,
