"... 'Narran que esta imagen (de la Virgen de los Remedios) le había sido quitado por un soldado por cierto indio que, habiéndola escondido entre algunas plantas de maguey, le ofrecía de beber y comer con la simple creencia de que tenía necesidad de alimento como si estuviera viva.'

There are also legends which say that this Virgin (or another female Saint, e.g. the Virgen de Juquila in some cases) manifested herself; appearing on top of a maguey plant. Jansen, M.; Van Der Loo, P.; Manning, R.
