The figure represents a couple who were in love, popularly known as Jhitku Mitki in the region. According to local stories:
'Mitki' was the sister of seven brothers of a 'Gond' family that lived in Newta Bandha village. As part of the tradition, her brother 'Lamsena' brought a youth 'Jhitku' to home for marrying 'Mitki'. Both fell in love but one day her brothers dreamt that the Goddess was demanding sacrifice. On not finding anyone, they sacrificed 'Jhitku'. 'Mitki' could not bear the separation and took her life.
Poet Jogendra Mahapatra Jogi said tribals believe that their 'mannats (desires)' get fulfilled by worshipping 'Jhitku Mitki'.
