Lotus Shoes, worn in China, from the 10th century to 2009. Foot binding at it's worst!
Lotus shoes, China, 10th to 21st centuries. The Han Chinese tradition of binding women’s feet to make them appear as small as a lotus bud lasted over 1000 years. The last factory to produce lotus shoes was the Zhiqiang Shoe Factory. In 1991 they began producing them for old Chinese women who still had bound feet. More than 4000 pairs were sold in the first 2 years alone. The factory announced in 2009 that it will make the shoes only as special orders.
Lotus shoes - which were worn by Chinese women with bound feet - could be as small as 3-4 inches in length. The thought of the process of footbinding and the amount of painful effort it took to create such small feet makes me cringe a bit every single time I see these. They're beautiful in pictures, yes, but seeing them in person and really SEEING how small they were...*shudders*

Love these Animal Footprint Shoes by Maskull Lasserre - leaves animal tracks in the snow.
Animal Footprint Shoes by Maskull Lasserre: Outliers is an ongoing project by artist Maskull Lasserre where shoes are outfitted with specially carved rubber soles meant to mimic the footprints of moose, Kodiak bears, deer, rabbits and other animals. The shoes are then worn in the snow leaving the impression to unsuspecting passersby that wildlife has wandered into urban areas including Montreal, Ottawa, Boston, and New York.

Reminder to all with Barbie envy: Barbie's proportions brought to life are 5'9", 110lbs, 39" bust, 18" waist and 33"hips.
Life Size, A Real Woman, Proportions Brought, 110Lbs, Real Barbie, Real Life, Body Image, Real Women, Slumber Parties
” Some people have skeletons in their closet. I have an enormous Barbie in mine. She stands about six feet tall with a 39” bust, 18” waist, and 33” hips. These are the supposed measurements of Barbie if she were a real person. I built her as a part of the first National Eating Disorder Awareness Week (NEDAW) at my high school, later introducing her to Hamilton College during its first NEDAW in 2011. When I was a little girl, I played with my Barbie in her playhouse, sending her and Ken on dates that always ended with a goodnight kiss. I had fond times with my Barbie, and I admired her perfect blonde locks and slim figure. Barbie represented beauty, perfection and the ideal for young girls around the world. At least, as a seven-year-old, that is what she was to me. In January 2007, I was looking for a way to make my peers realize the importance of eating disorders and body image issues. I was frustrated after quitting the cheerleading squad, frustrated with pressures to look and act a certain way and most of all frustrated with the eating disorder controlling my life. I wanted to do something that would turn others’ apathy into action. That evening, my neighbor and I found two long pieces of wood and started measuring. With a little math, nails and hammering, we built a stick figure that stood about six feet tall. The chicken wire came next. Surrounding her wooden frame, we created a body that wasn’t much thicker than a stick figure, but had the womanly and unattainable curves and proportions that impressionable young girls idealize. We stuffed the chicken wire with newspaper and created a body that creepily leaned against the wall in my neighbor’s basement. She now needed some skin, so I brought her back to my apartment and employed the masterful art of papier maché. Taking stacks of newspaper, glue and water, I skipped my high school semi-formal dance to give my girl some skin. Oddly, I started to feel my fondness for Barbie return, now not as a plaything but as a tool to reveal the negative body image that she promotes. As I papier machéd, I couldn’t forget Barbie’s impressive bust and blew up balloons over and over again to achieve a perfect 39” measurement. Once her chest was secured, I spent hours dipping and smoothing the paper, and later mixed paints to replicate her seemingly perfect white skin tone. With a little hard work and a lot of time, a headless, footless and handless body soon stood in my apartment. But it was then I became stumped. I couldn’t figure out how to recreate the recognizable face of the Barbie we all know and love. With NEDAW just around the corner, I was panicked. On my way to get office supplies, I drove by a Toys ‘R’ Us, and that’s when it hit me. Remember that Barbie with just shoulders and a head, meant for you to practice brushing her hair? I confidently walked into the toy store for the first time since I was a kid. I found the Barbie head, found a friend to assemble that head, and clothed Barbie for her first debut. I dressed Barbie in my old clothes. The skirt she still has on today is a reminder of who I once was. That skirt, a size double zero, used to slip off my waist when I was struggling with anorexia. I put it on Barbie to serve as a reminder that the way Barbie looks, the way I once looked, is not healthy and is not “normal,” whatever normal might mean. My Barbie’s role is simple. She grabs the attention of apathetic onlookers and makes them think and talk about an issue that thrives in silence. In the last four years, Barbie has surpassed my expectations, attracting attention and sparking conversation among listeners and readers across the nation. Once a year, at the end of February, Barbie comes out of the closet to meet my friends, strangers, and those apathetic onlookers. During NEDAW, she reminds people that eating disorders and body image issues are serious and prevalent. Holding an awareness week in high school or college is just one way to get students to discuss these important issues. However, constant discussion and education is key to dealing with and overcoming eating disorders. Despite her bizarre appearance, Barbie provides something that many advocacy efforts lack. She reminds of something we once loved, while showing us the absurdity of our obsession with perfection.

Siberian bear hunting suit. I'm damn sure I don't want to get close enough to a polar bear that he's trying to eat me before deciding I'm too sharp to bother with!
Siberian bear hunting armor from the 19th century.
Siberian Bear Hunting Armor (c.1800 A.D.) Though the object is called a bear hunting suit, it is more likely to have been used for bear bating. It consisted of leather pants, a leather jacket, and an iron helmet studded all over with 1-inch iron nails about 3/4 inches apart. The nails are held in place by a second layer of leather lining the whole thing and quilted into place between the nails.
Russian bear hunting armour from 19th century. The object is being called a Siberian bear-hunting suit, but I suspect it is more likely to be for bear bating than hunting, since I can’t imagine anyone could run around the woods in it. It consists of leather pants and jacket (and an iron helmet) studded all over with 1-inch iron nails about 3/4 inch apart. The nails are held in place by a second layer of leather lining the whole thing, and quilted into place between the nails.

I love to sit in silence and do all these things..! A
"I love to sit in silence beneath the shady trees and listen to the song of birds and to the buzz of bees. I love to sit in silence and watch the clouds roll by then read a book or sing a song and hear the wild bird cry. I love to sit in silence when the day is almost done and see behind the distant hill the paint glow of the sun. I love to sit in silence in the evening twilight and listen to the whippor-will singing with all its might..."
Fun idea. find a rock everyplace we camp and mark the place and the date.

Massive chunk of wild honeycomb! Photo by: Tarsh and Tariq Thekaekara ~ Kattunayakan are tribal people who live deep in the forests of the Nilgiris Biosphere Reserve in South India. They collect & sell wild honey. Harvesters can tell from the ground whether a hive 60-80 ft up in the air has honey or not & whether it is worth the effort to climb there. Children as young as eight go along not just as spectators but to actively participate. By the time they are 12 they are full members of the team.
AMAZING!! A giant swath of comb from what must have been a very very big bee hive. Photo by: Tarsh and Tariq Thekaekara This could feed the whole village.. #bees #biology #intriguing

Riding the wave of trickle down Reaganomics doesn't make you a good president, just a good politician. If we need an aspirin factory bombed or need to release a terrorist who would later cause the death of over 3,000 people on American soil and cause an encampment of troops in the dessert, we'll give you a call, meanwhile, call Monica, she might have a sister you Arkansas redneck!
