Kamjuy and the Raja touch their index fingers to their mouths in gestures of surprise.
On the left Kamjuy, chief of the Raja’s forty wives, turns away from the bowl of fish and hides her face behind her veil. She claims that it would be sinful to allow any male, even a fish, to see her. To the astonishment of both the Raja and Kamjuy herself, the fish immediately begin to laugh at her assertion.
