A gorgeous hand-lettered poem by Edward Monkton, this is a beautiful duet between a shoe and an admiring lady. THE SHOES OF SALVATION is Edward Monkton's smile-inducing take on the relationship between a woman and her shoe. The Shoe is the seductive object of the woman's affection, worshipped and admired from afar as the pinacle of perfection.
