Big Red Foot

Big Red Foot – cast concrete
Artist: Mary Seyfarth
Location: John Hancock Center outside of Hanig’s shoe store.

Seyfarth explains that the boot print under the heel signifies shedding the past, shedding the boot, and moving forward. She was inspired while studying in Greece–she said the experience of being in a place so ancient and walking over a site that has seen multiple civilizations come and go made her reflect on her feet and how we are all pilgrims.*
