S(He) Happy Skulls 2
The shape of the shoes is derived from the popular, 15th-century chopine, a type of platform shoe, and its Italian counterpart, the 16th-century zoccolo. These shoes were not practical for walking, but men and women proudly wore them as a symbol of great prestige and substantial wealth.
Patent leather and mixed media.
