I was walking by the Escondido Municipal Gallery this morning and these shoes caught my eye. The exhibit is Nurture vs. Nature.

I asked permission to take pictures and share . . . I think they make a pretty powerful statement.

May Y. Cheung Hoffman is the artist who created them. The description on the display reads: "These sculptures are inspired by my great-grandmother, who like many women in ancient China, was forced to bind her feet."

If you have the opportunity to come down and see them in person, I would highly recommend it. They say a lot more when seen in person.
