At first glance, this orientalist artwork by Schem looks a bit like a harem catfight to me, although it might just be a vigorous lesbian orgy. It’s hard to say!

two female sorcerers watch as three more women dressed for the harem wrestle and catfight and possibly seduce one another

The small amount of context I have might tip us toward the orgy theory. The artwork illustrated an article in the June 1938 issue of Le Journal Secret: Review D’éducation Sexuelle. Story title was L’Amour Sorcier chez les Arabes which, going strictly from English cognates, might mean something like “Sorcerer’s Love among the Arabs.” Presumably there’s nuance and connotation I’m missing?
