I agree. The point I wanted to make was that there were links between Europe and the area from which white cockatoos might be sourced well before the time the painting was made.
Nevertheless, the fact that Andrea Mantegna was from Padua, 25 km to the west of Venice and then part of the Republic of Venice, can't be overlooked and discarded as simply Eurocentic history making.
