Product Description

OLD INCA INDIAN CHILD SHOE, ATACAMA DESERT
THIS IS A UNIQUE DESERT ARTIFACT. IT IS AN INCA INDIAN CHILD HIGH-TOP SHOE. I FOUND IT IN A GHOST TOWN NEAR AN ABANDONED NITRATE MINE. THIS PLACE YOU CAN SEE THE ANDES MOUNTAINS WITH VOLCANO'S ALMOST 200 MILES AWAY. IF YOU ARE A COLLECTOR OF THE UNUSUAL AND UNIQUE YOU WOULD HAVE JUST THAT WITH THIS OLD SHOE DATING BACK TO ABOUT 1890. IT IS SO OLD MOST OF THE TINY NAILS HOLDING THE SOLE TO THE SHOE IS MADE OF CARVED WOOD NAILS AND THE MATERIAL IS BAKED HARD BY THE SUN. I CAN ONLY FIND FIVE NAILS MADE OF METAL.

I CAN IMAGINE A CHILD WEARING THIS SHOE UNTIL IT WOULD NOT SUPPORT HER LITTLE FEET AND HER WONDERING IF SHE WOULD EVERY SEE ANY OF THE REST OF THE WORLD BEYOUND THE FLAT DESERT.

PERHAPS IT WAS MADE OUT OF WILD DONKEY HIDE WITH WAS POPULAR AS LEATHER FOR SHOES IN THOSE DAYS. THE DESERT GHOST TOWN DATES THIS SHOE AROUND 1890-1910. THE SHOE IS 5.00" LONG AND HIGH TOP AT 4.00" WIDE.

THIS ARTIFACT I FOUND IN THE SANDS OF THE ATACAMA DESERT, THE DRIEST PLACE ON EARTH. IN THIS PLACE THE DEAD LIVE FOREVER AND HOPE NEVER DIES. YOU WON'T SEE A BLADE OF GRASS OR CACTUS STUMP, NOT A LIZARD, NOR A GNAT. BUT YOU WILL SEE THE REMAINS OF ALMOST EVERYTHING LEFT BEHIND BECAUSE IT IS A PLACE WERE THE WORLD STANDS STILL. THE DESERT MAY BE A HEARTLESS KILLER, BUT IT'S A SYMPATHETIC CONSERVATOR. WITHOUT MOISTURE, NOTHING ROTS. EVERYTHING TURNS INTO ARTIFACTS EVEN HUMANS.

THIS ARTIFACT WILL MAKE AN EXCELLENT ADDITION TO YOUR COLLECTION OF SHOES, ODD ITEMS AND COLLECTION OF HISTORY.

THIS ARTIFACT COMES WITH A MUSEUM CARD OF AUTHENTICITY. I GUARANTEE YOUR COMPLETE SATISFACTION.
