Haunting heel

This admittedly photoshopped image hit the Internet in October 2011. I found it while searching for a photograph that's been haunting my thoughts lately and incorporates the same idea. That image by contemporary American photographer Joel-Peter Witkin is entitled "Nègre’s Fetishist" (see it here - caution) and is itself a reenactment of a nude study (see it here - caution) by French photographer Charles Nègre (1820-1880). Witkin adds the "sensual stilts" (his words) to the model's feet in 1990 - a full 20 years before the above incarnation.
