Once destroyed by a fire, the "Three Inch Lotus" Museum reopens in Chengdu, southwest China's Sichuan province on Jan. 15, 2015. With over 5,000 pairs of "lotus shoes" on display, the museum reveals the thousand-year history of the foot-binding custom of Chinese women. "Three inch lotus" was a term used to call the bound feet of women or the exceptionally small shoes they wear. The smallest shoes on display are only 9 centimeters long. (Chinanews/Zhang Lang)
