This print is an extension of a traditional story which tells the creation of the crayfish (Keiyar). A young Meuram man, Keiyari, convinces a widowed Saisarem mother, Tekai, to allow her two reluctant daughters to assist him on his travels back to his village where they are introduced as his brides. The sisters soon attempt to flee with Keiyari in close pursuit. Eventually a battle transpires, and they are overcome by a reshaping metamorphosis.
