Chinese foot

Chinese foot is another mutilation made to little girls, but opposed to other barbaric children abuse, this one declining every year.

This was done to girls of royal descend in China, mostly because a royal blood will never need to walk on her own. She was carried everywhere, and her legs literally never touched ground.
Apart that, this barbarism was also considered beautiful. Tiny, extra arched feet in small shoes.
I’m so glad twentieth century finally brought default body into fashion, however, not without extravagance.
