Out of bounding

Wang Guifeng, 79, shows her uncovered foot binding.

"She had her feet bound when only a small child and is renowned for having the most beautiful lotus feet in the village. In the bottom image, she wraps her feet which acts like a support and keeps them in shape."

When you think about it, we do much worse things to ourselves now for the sake of beauty.
