London Part 2: Historic Feet

One of the things I got rather obsessed with in the museums was feet. Statues being on plinths, those feet are right at eye level, but what is everyone else looking at? Faces. Well, I did look at the faces, but I took pictures of the feet. You start noticing the successful sculptors of feet, and the less than successful. The really long toes. The sandals that look surprisingly contemporary.The bronze foot guards that probably did not catch on too well with anyone who needed to do a bit of running....

... and then you spy The Toe.
