Paduka or Guru's feet

This is a photo of the paduka or feet of a saint. This marble depiction of a saint's feet can be seen at the base of a tree on busy Laxmi road in Pune. Such depictions (of different gurus) are common throughout India. In Hindu culture and religion, padukas or the guru's feet are significant, and people venerate them when they venerate a particular Guru, whether it is Sai Baba or any other. You can read more about it here.
