Here the changeling’s body has become a bagpipe and you can see how he’s teasing everyone, even the cat and the dog. The music is represented by kind of hands coming out of the changeling’s head as he plays. This is because in the story he’s able to take control of others body as well as getting chairs and desks to dance. Also, note the bucket which, in the story, is held by his mother and knocked over by the music.
