Alternative Titles: Odalisque

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.

At issue:

I\'ve seen the term \"Odalisque\" used more than I have seen \"Reclining Venus\" used, and the source that I am sighting as the official term is The Annotated Mona Lisa, Third Edition: A Crash Course in Art History from Prehistoric to the Present, a book that I am using for an Art History class I am taking this summer. It would be like if I started a trope page based around \"death and mortality symbolism as a visual motif\" and calling it \"Vanitas\".

With that said, it has been addressed to me that since the word is alternatively associated with the painted depiction of harem girls and that some would consider the title I have chosen to not be clear enough and now I have put up a poll to see if any of you feel the same way, and if any of you have any other names, put them up and see if anybody else prefers them. The art world is built on discussion as much as its content. Trust me, I\'ve been stuck in art academia since Middle School.
