Sothebys are offering a black granite monument, like an epitaph on a memorial, engraved with every occasion the England football team has lost a game. The untitled work by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan is estimated at £400,000-600,000 as part of the single-owner Bear Witness sale.

He first exhibited the monument at a London show in 1999 and the roll-call of shame stretches from from Scotland’s 2-1 defeat of England in Glasgow in 1874 to Romania’s 2-1 victory at the 1998 World Cup (it is lucky it doesn’t include defeats since, or the world supply of granite could be under threat).

This is a unique gift from the Lazio Vice-President in the late 1990's. It was produced for a UEFA Champions League qualifying match, and it is 1 of 4 in the world !! After this there was no more production of this Unique Item. 

The figurine is based on the famous Russian Matrioshka. This is basically a set of wooden players decreasing in size and placed one inside the other.
