In the background men row up the Parana River to the fort of Bon Speranza or Corpus Christi.Text concerns Schmidel's travels on the Rio de la Plata, Argentina. He describes the Timbu as living upon nothing but fish and meat. The men wear blue stones on either side of their nostrils while the women are all deformed and have the lower part of their faces scratched and bloody.
