I'm not sure if I understand you correctly, but it seems that you found
some pictures that don't look like maize? 

I really don't see the significance of this... As you may already know by
now, there are hundreds of such carvings in many temples. So some of them
don't look like maize? Is this surprising? 

Isn't the fact that _many_ of them look _very much_ like maize more
