Left Foot Ashtray
I never figured out what the deal is with these things-- a foot with the big toe sticking up doesn't seem to be an especially meaningful symbol to any culture. As far as I know this is a weird thing that you sell to tourists, and maybe that's all there is to it. But where it originated and what it "means" I do not know.
My version is a VERY limited run, I only made 20. I've decided to price them at what I paid for the first one, which was $18 in 1996. Adjusted for inflation that's $30. They're $30.
After much debate I've decided to present them without stain or varnish-- you may finish these however you like, or leave it unfinished. Similarly, you are free to think about it however you like, or not think about it at all. I do not recommend actually using it as an ashtray.
