About the artwork:
Shui Gui, the water ghosts, or the spirits of the people who drowned. They lurk in the place where they died, drag unsuspecting victims underwater, and drown them to take possession of their bodies.

This process is known as ti shen (Chinese: 替身; pinyin: tì shēn; lit. "replace the body"), in which the spirit returns to life in the victim's body while the victim's spirit takes the Shui Gui's place and constantly seeks to take control of another living person's body.
