Walking Man on Divided Plinth

I dreamed old people were walking along, each with shoes that were attached to halves of a giant square.  I thought, in my sleeping mind, that these old folks needed their own private space and the special shoes were the means to that end.

After making the picture below, I thought about that famous sculpture by Auguste Rodin: Walking Man. Critics have pointed out that in Rodin’s sculpture, the stride of the ‘Walking Man’ is not natural, since both feet are flat on the ground.  The gait of my ‘Walking Man’ is also unnatural, due to the massive attachments to each shoe.
