Pele diamond statues created from his own DNA

Yes, this is really a thing.

For the bargain price of $7,500 you can now own a special World Cup souvenir — a diamond figurine made of diamonds that actually contain DNA extracted from Pele’s hair.

A total of 1,238 of these special edition statues will be available for purchase, one for each goal Pele is said to have scored in his legendary career.
