She was an assistant or apprentice to the concubines and wives. Most Odalisques were part of the Imperial Harem (= the household of the Turkish Sultan). This figurine is of highest quality due to the excellent painting of the lady's garments as well as of the figurine's fine appearance: The lady's cape (which is laid over her head falling down over her shoulders) is multicoloured painted. The odalisque is wearing a pair of Arab trousers / the upper part of her body is covered with a bikini-like garment. The lady's features are very handsome: She has a pretty nose, red cheeks and excellently shaped lips. Aida is looking down towards earth. - The figurine is based on black ovoid & tiered socle.
