Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The scantily clad young lady, alluring in her pose and confident in its effects, stretches languidly atop a stylised figure of a great cat.
Naked to the waist, her costume, adorned with the fringes of coins so beloved of European artists in their interpretation of Middle-Eastern exoticism, is skilfully executed to represent the finest of tissue, covering but at the same time accentuating her sensual curves.
Her head dress is decorated on each side with coiled snakes, a probable nod in the direction of Cleopatra.
She is signed by the artist and is presented on a low plinth of translucent alabaster.
