Behind every great man is a woman, with an ultimate strength. The inspiration for this pair is the Buddhist goddess Arya Tara, the female Buddha. She is known as the "mother of liberation", and represents the virtues of success in work and achievements. Tara is the generic name for this goddess, but there are different representations of her with various meanings. I've depicted the White Tara known for compassion, long life, healing and serenity; also known as The Wish-fulfilling Wheel. I've painted her in great detail on the outside and inside of the shoes with gold accents. On the outside is her portrait and on the inside is the lower half of her body in a meditative position . Her feet are painted with the third eye in the middle; I used this as the inspiration for the insoles, which have a foot with the third eye as the focus. The tongue is representative of the petals of a lotus flower, each individually cut from leather and sewn, then painted.

These customs are jaw dropping. The artwork is so well done it would almost be too much to rock. But I'd rock these once in a while just to have something truly unique on my feet.

Honestly, I'd put these in a glass storage case to display to guests that came in my place.

Digging the intricate and precise strokes; however, i don't think i'd ever rock these, way too much detail for a shoe!
