The three pairs of birds in the tree and pond allude to the three suitors.
The three suitors hold the lifeless body of the woman they intended to marry. She is wrapped in a diaphanous burial shroud, and her tomb stands empty in the background. When the suitors realize that the woman is not dead, they proceed to attempt to revive her.
