22k gold signature piece of Octopus Paul made in India

The fame of Paul the Octopus has reached far and wide. Even the cricket worshipping nation like India could not help but be bowled over by the psychic animal who correctly predicted the FIFA World Cup winners. Immortalizing the psychic animal in a piece of art is a Kolkata based group who has crafted a signature piece of Paul the octopus in 22k gold. Reportedly around 30 craftsmen have worked on this piece, which weighs 3.3kgs. With an asking price of INR 80 lakhs ($171,544), this piece is available for the true fan of this psychic creature. Wonder if the Russian bookmakers, who failed in buying Paul, might be interested in this gilded image of the octopus.
