Do I have proof? Well, it depends on what you may call proof... But I

some quotes: 


What are those Indian carvings all about? What kind of a "fruit" may these
goddesses be holding in their hands? 
Now I have the photos of these carvings available right here on my
webpage, and anyone who wishes can take a look at them for themselves.


So, Robert, this will take you directly to these black-and-white photos:
