The sea where the king dropped his ring is represented here as a walled pool.
The prince arrived at a royal capital, where he pledged to assist the local king in any tasks. One day, when fishing at sea, the king dropped a precious ring into the water. The prince asked his servant, the frog, to retrieve it. At the left, the prince respectfully returns the ring to the king on his throne. The frog is at the entrance of the walled harbor to the sea, where a boatman bails water. Lotus flowers have been painted among the swirling eddies.
