The fish that the jackal was trying to catch is visible in the stream.
Having been left alone in the wilderness by her lover, the woman comes across the jackal who has just lost its meal. The wise jackal counsels her on the importance of satisfaction and instructs her to return to her husband. Above them, a large bird flies away with the jackal’s food gripped in its feet.
