It is not every day that real gold toilets are available for people to view and use but that is exactly the case on the fifth floor of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City.

The unusual piece of art is fully functional and was designed and created by Maurizio Cattelan, who titled the piece 'America (2016).' The toilet is made from real 18-karat gold, which is likely worth between $2-3 million dollars in the US. Users are allowed to use the toilet but the one rule is for it is that users are not allowed to lift the seat.

This functional gold toilet works as a unique art piece while also making a statement about wealth and consumption habits in the USA.
