toga foot

I took this photo for one of my Cowbird stories yesterday morning. When I was downloading it and saving it to my Cowbird folder, I almost wrote “toga foot” instead of “yoga foot.” That made me laugh. What the heck is a toga foot?

Then I remembered something from my art history classes. There’s a kind of foot called a “Grecian” foot, where the second toe is longer than the first toe. It’s the idealized foot found in all Greek sculptures, and in a lot of Roman and Renaissance art, too. I have Greek feet. So maybe my feet are toga feet after all…

Do you have Greek feet? Or Egyptian feet (with the big toe longer than the other toes)?

Do you think it feels different to have one kind of foot or the other?
