Jane Yates (ohsomebody) | 229 comments Mod is a model of a bound foot from China. Next to it is a shoe. Until the turn of the 20th century, young girls’ feet were bound tightly and then put into tiny shoes just 3 or 4 inches long, as they believed small feet were beautiful. In the story, Rose, Maggie and Lilly look at it on a visit to the Museum.
