Guggenheim Museum in NYC unveils 18-karat gold toilet
http://www.cbsnews.com/news/guggenheim-museum-in-nyc-unveils-18-karat-gold-toilet/

Quote:
"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.

Viewers are invited to use the solid gold toilet just as they would any other facility.

It’s the first piece Cattelan has exhibited since his 2011 retrospective at the Guggenheim. It opens on Friday.

The museum says on its website that the exhibit “offers a wink to the excesses of the art market but also evokes the American dream of opportunity for all.”"

Gold symbolizes wealth and prosperity. In Indian context, it degrades Goddess of Wealth. This may bring negative vibration.

I don't mean to pry, but how much is it worth?
