At Pablo Neruda’s home in Santiago, La Chascona. He collected objects on his trips around the world (and brought back to Santiago in his diplomatic pouch, tax free). He had these giant shoes, though, because they reminded him of his youth growing up in rural Chile, where businesses advertised themselves with giant representations of the products they sold in order to be able to attract illiterate customers.
