Paul, the celebrity octopus who fascinated soccer fans by predicting results at the World Cup, has been immortalised.
The Sea Life aquarium in Germany unveiled a memorial statue - a two-metre tall plastic replica of Paul clutching a football.
Aquarium spokeswoman Tanja Munzig said the cremated ashes of Paul, who died three months ago, were placed in a gold-leaf-covered urn inside the ball.
"We acted upon the wishes of fans and created a place of remembrance.
"This monument was also built to show visitors just how much people around the world loved Paul," Munzig told The Associated Press.
Paul correctly tipped the outcome of all seven of Germany's games at last year's World Cup, plus the Spain-Netherlands final.

The oversized football that the immortalised Paul sits on is covered with different national flags and also has a small window through which visitors can look at the urn.
In addition, the aquarium created "Paul Corner", which includes newspaper clippings in many different languages that tell of Paul's global fame and exhibits gifts sent to the museum.
A family in Spain sent a glass of mussels in oil as a reward for Paul after he correctly predicted that Spain would win the World Cup, Munzig said.
A fan from New Zealand tailored a red, sleeveless football shirt for Paul - with a hole for each tentacle

"RIDICULOUS"
