You're looking for different types of imagery? Hmm. Let me see.
Nature (Lucentio's opening speech refers to garden)
Thirst (that same first speech)
Food (too many to count, but start with Tranio's first speech)
Labor (Gremio's statement about "cart"-ing Kate)
Mythic (references to Jove, Minerva)
Weather (references to gales and winds when Petruchio arrives)
Wealth (mining, jewels)
