"...This shape has also been called Greek foot (as opposed to the Egyptian foot, where the great toe is longer). It was an idealised form in Greek sculpture, and this persisted as an aesthetic standard through Roman and Renaissance periods and later (the Statue of Liberty has toes of this proportion). The French call it pied ancestral or pied de Néanderthal, believing it to be a sign of intelligence. Cleopatra was known to have this, and many consider this trait to be a sign of beauty."
WHAHAHAHAHA! Yes! This made my day. For all you people who have ever made fun of my long, skinny, strange feet: take that! (P.S. Jamie, I especially thought you would appreciate this knowledge, being the foot-genius that you are!)
Okay, so more Greece pictures are coming... thank you for your patience during my little diversion.
Another beautiful example of Greek Feet (seriously, my feet look JUST like that) from the museum at Ancient Corinth! Enjoy!
