The first graphic is useless - for the "record". As to statues, one must consider that Greek art like most of Greek culture was greatly valued by all cultures it encountered and for a long time. The Greeks making those earliest statues came after the Dorian invasions - R1b types. They carved what they saw - even Michelangelo's David. But this is really just to say that Carol Cleveland of Monty Python fame has Greek feet. About 15 seconds in and later https://youtu.be/XiVGSaYXpqoNobody is making fun of Yetos. Teasing is different from ridiculing. However, to think you can tell y lineage from toes is indeed silly.
The majority of people in Greece are NOT R1b, yet virtually every Greek statue or copy of a Greek statue I've ever seen either has "Greek" or "Roman" toes, long toes anyway. I think it's like the absolutely parallel to the forehead version of the Greek nose: I just think it's what they thought was beautiful.
The majority of people in Britain ARE R1b, and yet I read somewhere that the majority of their feet are either Celtic or "Egyptian".
Upon careful reconsideration of this important topic, I previously made an error: I think I have Greek toes as well as a modified Greek nose. Strictly a coincidence, I assure you.
