This Painting represents the Jilinya. She captures the eyes of young and old men and then lures them by giving them whatever they wish to hunt or fish. She then lures them further and further away by catching and hunting. This makes the man more eager to go back to that same place. Once she has pulled them away as far as she can then she’ll show herself to him. She takes them away and they are never seen again. Women can only hear and smell her but the men see her.
