The identity of a tree depicted in Tiziano Vecelli's -- better known at Titian -- painting entitled "The Bacchanal of the Andrians", done around 1523-1526 which may be seen at the Museo del Prado in Madrid, Spain, has come into question. A member of the Venetian school, this work was done in Venice and likely is a tree found in that portion of Italy.
Opinion on the identity of the tree to the right of center with a large fowl in the upper branches is requested.
