“Instead of thinking of how I was limited by these legs, I started to think of the unlimited possibilities with these legs.”
Amy Purdy is a world-class adaptive snowboarder who has won three back-to-back Paralympic World Cup gold medals and is currently training for the Paralympic Games. At age 19, doctors amputated both her legs below the knee following complications from bacterial meningitis. She now has prosthetics.
“Amy came to Funny Farm via a post that we had out for a modeling agency, looking for a double amputee. I had an idea in my head. I wanted to go build legs for somebody that were spikes, and I wanted to put them in a situation that they could never be in. I wanted to capture that emotion. ” - Nikki Sixx
