Footballer Lionel Messi is the latest individual to be immortalized by gold sculptor Ginza Tanaka. Well, his foot is, anyway. Tanaka has crafted a precise replica of Messi’s left foot in 25 kg of gold, and it is expected to cost $5,250,000.

Ginza Tanaka has also made a couple of less expensive odes to Lionel Messi’s left foot, including a limited-edition imprint for $94,500 and a miniature copy of the sculpture for $42,000.

Or, for approximately $0, you could look at pictures of all the pieces in the above gallery. If you still are not satisfied, head to the sculpture’s official website here for info on the pieces.
