I'm looking at ledger art a lot these days, and I'm noticing that many artists were concerned with the feet of the animals. For example, deer and bison are often portrayed with their cleft hooves.

I like these artists' perspectives. Can you imagine if instead of focusing on the face of a person, as artist focused on a person's feet? (And of course, there are paintings like Van Gogh's Peasant Shoes.)
Let's get grounded!
