Side View of the Bone of the Foot
Bones of the foot, side view. In this figure the bones of the tarsus extend from the heel to a; the metatarsal bones are at b; and the bones of the toes are at c. In every movement of the foot there is some little motion between all these bones, and it is this that gives ease and grace to its motions.
