Jose Maria Cave Interpretive Illustration






Reading from left to right, the tribute depicts a rectangular grater that is used on the yucca (guayo) root imaged by an s-shaped object.
The grid barbeque, just to the right of the root, cooked the casaba bread imaged above. A cacique, or chief, is represented between
the barbeque and a tall guayiga plant that was also part of the tribute. Finally, a long boat which shipped the casaba bread and
guayiga to the Spanish camps is depicted.
