I can't help but notice the ironic juxtaposition of the orientalist and colonial attitudes represented in the Ingres painting compared with the patriarchal nature of both the fashion industry and this specific photograph. the gaze of both the Odalisque and Sasha Pivovarova have a certain passivity that has inevitably led to the proliferation of such hegemonies.
