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.
