"Bound slave girl brought before a sheikh" by Leopold Carl Muller (1834-92)

"Bound slave girl brought before a sheikh" by Leopold Carl Muller (1834-92)

A half naked female slave with her hands tied behind her back is brought before a seated male figure and forced to her knees. It looks as if she's been dragged in by her hair. Why is she being handled so roughly? Is she new and untamed? Has she attempted to runaway? Has she been caught in some act of grave disobedience?
