Sculpted Giulia Tanini - Blue Ring

These sculpted Giulia Tanini scuplted wedges are truly a work of art.  I'm not sure if they are intended to actually be worn but *raises hands* I'll gladly test them out.

Blue Ring
Part of the Blue Ring collection 2011
"This shoe is named after a deadly octopus from the Pacific Ocean (Hapalochlaena Lunulata) that has large bright blue rings on its mantle. The intricate perforations for the upper were laser-cut and she then coloured the edges by hand. The wooden heel structures also resemble the texture of the octopus skin and have been made using a CNC milling machine. Due to their complex structure each heel took between 7 and 14 days to make!"
