A pair of carved feet on the same block, probably apprentice practice pieces.

A large number of carved feet have been found at Aphrodisias, many of them of relatively low quality, which seem to have been produced by apprentices or trainee sculptors in the city. Feet were probably used as subjects because they are fairly complicated anatomically, because the pieces of stone on which they were carved could be laid down on a flat surface, and because the sculptors could use their own feet as models. From this example it is clear that trainees were either given a block that they used again and again or that part-worked blocks were passed on to other carvers.
