World leaders might seem like gods to many, especially since it often feels as though they hold the fate of millions in their grasp; yet artist Cristina Guggeri wants to remind citizens that they are also just human with many shared commonalities. She hones in on a crucial one: the need to visit the toilet.

Cristina Guggeri created the series, The Daily Duty, which depicts world leaders such as President Barack Obama, Queen Elizabeth and even the Dakau Lama as they do their business in the washroom. Design Taxi notes, "Hilariously depicted, these dedicated leaders seemingly focused on their work, are seen with frowns on their faces even when they are away from their desk." It's not like they can also unload the weight of the world at the same time, unfortunately.
