Members of the public are being invited to use a solid gold toilet at New York City’s Guggenheim Museum.

Italian artist and sculptor Maurizio Cattelan created the fully functional 18-carat gold lavatory, which he has titled America.

The interactive exhibit has been installed in one of the Guggenheim’s public bathrooms.

Maurizio Cattelan hinted his creation was inspired by economic inequality.

The lavatory replaced one of the Guggenheim’s porcelain toilets in a one-person, unisex restroom.
Visitors who pay museum admission will be able to use it as they wish.
