Can you identify the footprint?

Found on beach at Lee on the Solent, Hampshire. Thank you.

    Hi - welcome

     

    First, this is not a rock local to the area.  It is limestone/marble criss-crossed with calcite or quartz veins and was a very hard rock and thus couldn't have taken the imprint of a foot.  It is a bit puzzling as the concave areas do not show obvious signs of tooling but it cannot be a natural specimen.

    Maybe someone else will come up with an explanation...

    Not southern England - maybe Italy?

      i don't have anything constructive to add to this discussion!

      I am intrigued. How and why would someone make such a thing? What a strange coincidence that it was found on a shingle beach among a few million other pebbles.. It doesn't look to be water rolled so probably hasn't been in the sea for very long.

      Very curious!
