Guessing this is ca. 1890-1910, a French cabinet photo loaded with period symbolism.
The short feral girl (representing primal woman) worships the elegant goddess (representing human perfection) on a pedestal (representing, um, a pedestal). And then there's that cute tiger tail and the romance in their eyes, of course!
