Gold Cast Of Lionel Messi’s Left Foot
A Japanese jeweler by the name of Tanaka Kikinzoku has produced a pure gold model of Lionel Messi’s left foot, which was revealed to the public in Tokyo yesterday.
Tanaka took a casting of Messi’s foot at the tail end of 2012 and now the 25cm-tall, 25kg replica was unveiled by Lionel Messi’s brother.
The sculpture is available for purchase and that it could be yours for the incredibly reasonable price of just $5.25million (around about £3.5million).
Tanaka also confirmed that a portion of the profits would be donated to Lionel Messi’s foundation.
