Maradona’s complete sculpture of a goal-scorer, known as “God’s hand”, will be made of gold, according to Boby Chemmanur,his close friend.
“The last time I saw Maradona, he was gifted a small gold sculpture . At the time, Maradona asked if he could sculpt his god’s goal. But at that time there was no reply as it cost crores of rupees and left in the form of a joke.”-said Boby Chemmanur.
“But when he died, I felt that one wish should be fulfilled. If there is such a thing as a soul, then I am convinced that Maradona’s soul would be delighted to see this sculpture. ” he added.
The ball touches Maradona’s hand, which is five and a half feet high, and has the word ‘thank you’ printed on it in Spanish. The gold sculpture of Maradona, who is also the brand ambassador of his group, will be completed and kept in any famous museum in India, said Boby.
