Solid gold toilet available for use in a New York museum

19/09/2016
A New York City museum is offering visitors a chance to sit on a golden throne, but only in private.
 
As part of his 'America' exhibit at the Solomon R Guggenheim Museum, Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan replaced the toilet in the museum's fourth-floor restroom with a fully functional replica cast in 18-karat gold.
 
Visitors are invited to use the solid gold toilet just as they would any other facility, but are asked to not move the seat up and down.
