About the inclusion of figures in Africa: perhaps at this period Africans were sufficiently known for a common stereotype to have emerged - taller than average, dark skin and dark curly hair - but no single stereotype said 'Asia' to European minds? They wouldn't need a stereotypical European. Perhaps with the artistic decision made to include the African figures as decoration, ships would have crowded the design?
