In the traditional Indonesian myth of "Jaka Tarub," a man, Jaka Tarub, happens upon a pond where a group of nymphs are bathing. He steals one of their clothes in a bid to become her husband. The nymph marries Jaka Tarub, but she discovers his deception years later, and flees back to her home with her clothes. Balinese artist Ida Ratna Ningrum paints this iconic scene in a realist style, depicting the group of beautiful nymphs bathing beneath a waterfall as Jaka Tarub steals their clothes in the distance.
