Study of a Water Nixie II

In The Nixie of the Pond, a beautiful but malevolent water sprite (a “nixie”) uses a miller’s greediness to deceive him into promising her the miller’s son.  She seizes and holds the grown son prisoner, but later loses him again through a trick that exploits the nixie’s weakness – her very own greed.
