The foot in action in the famous Python opening sequence.<br />
<br />
The famous foot from the opening sequence of Monty Python's Flying Circus has emerged for sale - just as the original members of the comedy troupe perform live for the final time.<br />
<br />
The foot became a symbol of the Pythons after featuring in the surreal opening titles squashing various things.<br />
<br />
It appears from the top of the screen to stamp on a man in a suit with flowers growing out of his head and then a banner with the show's name on it to the sound of someone blowing a raspberry.<br />
<br />
Terry Gilliam, the group's genius animator, had adapted the foot from a painting of Cupid by 16th century artist Agnolo Bronzino and it was used throughout the show from 1969 to 1974.
