Pedestriana.JPG

Pedestriana is the barefoot Goddess of Football. Her name, not surprisingly given that she is the god of football, is associated with feet. The Manchester Guardian, (edition of 30/12/09), published an article on collections with a man who wanted to own a match program for every game ever played by London side Tottenham Hotspur. The newspaper reproduced the front cover of the 1921 F.A. Cup Final programme, which features a robed and barefoot Goddess of Football, the winged angel standing bare of foot atop the ball.  Whether Pratchett took his goddess from this drawing is not known.
