The stream was painted in silver, which has tarnished.
After agreeing to run away with the daughter-in-law of the king of Banaras, the destitute young man realizes that their relationship is unlikely to end happily. He leaves, taking her valuables with him. The woman, now alone on the other side of the stream, bereft of her jewelry, touches her index finger to her mouth in a gesture of shock.
