Towards the end of 2012, Japanese jeweler Ginza Tanaka brought a cast of Lionel Messi‘s foot home with him following his trip to Spain.  The purpose was to create a replica of the Argentine star’s foot, which is set to go on sale for $5.25-million, with proceeds going towards the Leo Messi Foundation, a global charity for at risk children.

Messi’s golden foot, which is said to weigh 25 kg and stand 10 inches tall, was unveiled yesterday, and while it’s price may seem rather steep, we should remind you that Lionel Messi’s real (not gold) foot is worth much more — $66.68-million per year, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

Here’s a look at the making of Lionel Messi’s golden foot:
