Business Insider has reported that if you ever wanted to sit on a golden throne, now is the time to do it as the famed Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York invited visitors to use the bathroom at "America," an exhibit by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan.
"America" is a fully functional gold toilet and has been on display for about a year.
More than 100,000 museum visitors have waited in line to use the popular installation, which is made out of 100 percent 18-karat gold.
The artwork, based on the museum's standard Kohler toilets, makes "available to the public an extravagant luxury product seemingly intended for the 1 percent," according to its label.
"America" is on the fifth floor of the Guggenheim's spiraling rotunda that was designed by architect Frank Lloyd-Wright, and will be removed on Sept. 15.
