      Description

      Motive

      A motive is the reason for an action, the psychological force that propels someone to behave in a certain manner or to pursue a certain goal.
      

      Motif

      A motif is a theme or idea that recurs as a pattern in an artistic[1] work. Motifs occur in architecture, music, literature, fashion, etc
      

      [1]i.e. paintings

      This is most likely a mistranslation, or a miscommunication*,* or straight up a typo, which leaves it kind of misleading.
