Ducks, fish, a turtle, and a crocodile swim in the waters of the pool.
The raja, wearing a leopard print cape around his shoulders, sits with the brothers at the edge of a pool. Four magical objects, a cloak, a blanket, shoes, and a sword, lie on the ground between them. Under the pretense of dividing the goods, the raja distracts the brothers and steals their inheritance.
