ABC Wednesday-"F" is for "feet"

These terra cotta tootsies, standing on Belgrade's pedestrian street, were created along with other unusual clay works of art in honor of BELEF (Beogradski Letnji Festival) or Belgrade's Summer Festival, a tribute to theater productions, visual arts, and music. It looks like someone "walked off" with a foot from the first row.... Actually, they sort of give me the creeps....

I remember these sculptures. Regardless of whether I liked them or not, I found it horrble to watch the pro-Karadzic hooligans throwng them at police and destroying someone's personal work.

I do wonder why BELEF didn't decide to perhaps cancel the exhibition the day after Karadzic arrest! We all knew something was going to kick-off.

Well, if the artist used a life model I wouldn't care to meet him in a dark alley.

Bibi, thank you for dropping by my site. Come back anytime. Again, I am so sorry about your loss. I will continue to pray for you as the days right around the funeral are usually filled with more people and activities. I haven't ever lost a spouse, but I have lost both of my parents. My dad when I was 11 and my mother when I was 29. It's difficult, but the Lord will always be there for you.

I am creeped out too. The bit toes are even more so. Hey who would steal a foot? EEWwWWW. By the way, I see some odd things in the backgound too. Not going to comment on what they might be.

something odd is afoot here.

Chuck Pefley said...

Looks like you've got a toe hold on the future :) And as Babooshka says, there's a lot of sole here, too. But one foot left and I always thought the admonition was to step off on the "right" foot :)

Glad to see you're keeping up with your posts ...

Dirk said...

Gorgeous picture. Nice choice for the F.

Yeah, I agree, sort of look like the human equivalent of pickled pigs feet, Not a pretty foot anyway... They should have put their best foot forward!

Eew, I'm so glad you said it gives you the creeps because that was my first reaction, too. But fantastic photo! :)

OMG these feet are very creepy, but such a unique idea for your F post. I am very sorry that your husband has passed away.

Your pictures are always so fascinating! I think some of these feet need red toenail polish.
