Japanese jeweler Ginza Tanaka, famous for creating the most expensive Christmas tree ever made, has unveiled a solid gold version of Lionel Messi’s famous left foot worth $5.25 million. The foot and miniature version of the foot will go on sale, with proceeds benefiting Messi’s foundation, helping children affected by the Japanese tsunami and earthquake.
The foot weighs in at 55 lbs., and has all of the details of Leo’s real foot, like blood vessels and swirls in the skin. Hopefully Leo didn’t have a corn at the time of the casting.
Ginza Tanaka made the original mold of Leo’s foot last year to commemorate Leo’s fourth consecutive Ballon d’Or.
