The Stone cut without hands (Christ the last Lawgiver who came to earth during the reign of the Roman empire), smote the feet of the statue (Roman empire) causing the ultimate destruction of the entire statue.
Dan.2:33-34 His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.....43-44 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.From history we know this to be true; when Jesus came to earth in the 1st century bringing in the everlasting kingdom of God, the beginnings of the demise of the Roman empire started. Thus we have Shiloh who was the last ruler to come from between the feet of the tribe of Judah (after the temple was destroyed all records of tribal affiliation was lost), being the Stone that smashed the feet of the last mighty empire (Rome) that ruled during the time of His earthly mission, ultimately bringing it into submission to the cross....thus fulfilling Daniels prophecy.
