Feet : In dreams

In ancient times, long before the subconscious was acknowledged nocturnal ramblings were thought to be visions containing important messages which if ignored could spell disaster. When the King of Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar (630 - 562 BC) dreamt of the collapse of a giant statue of a man with a golden head and toes made of clay and iron he could not rest peacefully until he had his dream interpreted. According to Daniel (verse 2: 41-42), the dream was interpreted to mean the division of a kingdom. In the dream the colossus collapsed because of the crumbling clay feet which reinforce the idea weak feet were interpreted as a disadvantage and or handicap.

'And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.'
Daniel 2: 42
