The giant Colossal Foot on display within Chatsworth House Derbyshire, England.

It was long thought to be a fake, but it has now been identified as part of a gigantic Greek statue, dating from the time of Christ. The other foot is in a museum in Berlin, Germany.

I have seen many shots of this foot but none done with this perspective.

    Fascinating. I have spent quite a lot of time looking at and enjoying the detail and texture. I would have been tempted to make a clin d’oeil (well, you are called “danslesprit”…) to a famous film (and book) and call it “My (other) left foot” – mostly because of that vital piece of information about the location of the other one which adds a whole new dimension to the image.

  • Merci beaucoup. I could of done with you there as I sat trying to think up a suitable title.
