Lionel Messi’s Left Foot Immortalized in Solid Gold

Japanese Artist Ginza Tanaka, world-renowned for his stunning Gold sculptures, has immortalized Argentinean footballer Lionel Messi’s left foot. This one-of-a-kind ode to Lionel Messi, who is considered by many to be one of the greatest footballers in the world, was created in 2012, the same year that Messi scored a record breaking 91 goals for FC Barcelona.

Measuring 25 x 28 x 16 and weighting approximately 25 kg, the solid gold foot is worth a whopping $5,250,000. For FC Barcelona football fans who simply can’t shed out millions for a memorabilia, Tanaka has also produced a limited edition of 50 golden plate imprint of the athlete’s foot to be sold for $94,500 and a limited edition of 100 miniature version of the solid gold foot available for $42,000.
