I'll tell you all something, I love Roman slavery, but my greatest obsession is with Islamic slavery, an obsession for which I've consumed countless books and papers. I do mean Islamic and not merely Orientalist. That is, heavily steeped in historical practice! So I just had to comment on this thread and share with you all that art I commissioned.And here I thought you were supposed to be the slave.
Very much so, I think. Lovely girls - I wonder whose harem they belonged in. Some well off Nubian fellow?
Very nice, Jolly. The new girl will learn to be comfortable without her briefs, in time.Very much so, I think. Lovely girls - I wonder whose harem they belonged in. Some well off Nubian fellow?
Anyway, @Serva was very gracious in her comments on a previous manip I had done years ago (it appears somewhere in this thread earlier, somewhere in 2015) which featured an anonymous red haired model, seen from the back, her hands tied with cloth. I was inspired to do a remake of that image, which turned into more of a sequel, as the version here is for all practical purposes a new image altogether, even though it riffs off the same original painting "Pool in a Harem" by Gerome.
This one is called "New Girl in the Harem" (Jollyrei, 2020). Thanks to Bobinder and Wragg for technical commentary and overall moral support.

Oh I think the old guy with the pipe is going on a bit too long, the Sultan taps his long smoking-pipe impatiently,Entertaining the Sultan, or whoever he is, and a few of his friends. This may not be going well, despite the efforts of the girls. The guys by the wall all seem more interested in the pipe player, and they're all armed (as someone pointed out to me). Perhaps the next manip will be "The day the music died"
