What is the album picture of for The Decemberist’s Crane Wife cd?

The Crane Wife has an album cover of a short asian-looking man and women. The women seems to have a blood spot on her chest. What is this picture of? Is it a painting from somewhere?

    wild guess, but it might have something to do with the saying “he/she ripped my heart out”. thats what it looks like to me. only thing wrong is that the blood stain is on the wrong side.

    maybe possibly the bride was shot or something and the guy is holding her up.

    for both i have no idea how the name relates to it.
