    I like this picture because it helps me to draw the focus of health care professionals and of patients with diabetes to the importance of foot care. If I an not wrong, it has already been used widely for purposes of medical education (and therapeutic patient education). Finally, I alway am pleased to read the name of the artist: John Henry Fuseli, knowing that he was born in Switzerland as Johann Heinrich Füssli. The family name "Füssli" is a Swiss German diminutive and signifies "Little Foot", a fact that adds to the paradox that the artist weeps at the base of a giant antique foot.
