Iranian artist Fatemeh Hamami Nasrabadi has been using her feet to create portraits of famous figures, including footballers Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, for several years.
The 31-year-old, who's body is 85 percent paralysed, demonstrated her technique of drawing by clutching pencils between two toes on her right foot from her family home in Sefidshahr on Saturday.
Hamami Nasrabadi, who... Еще developed her passion for art at a young age and later received professional training, can be seen adding additional touches to her portrait of Messi that she completed previously.
«I have a dream, to have my own art gallery. This is my most important goal,» said Hamami Nasrabadi.
The artist's disability was caused by being deprived of oxygen for ten minutes during her birth, according to her mother Zohre Arbabi.
The artist's father Javad Hamami Nasrabadi complained the lack of support for his daughter and called for more to be done, saying «they have to care about such children,» adding that people with disabilities «should know that they have also some rights in this country.»
