In "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me", Austin Powers, played by Mike Myers, states that he would like a toilet made out of solid gold, but it's just not in the cards...

Well, those were different times then. Thanks to The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York and artist Maurizio Cattelan, who is known for his satirical sculpture, you can now have a solid gold toilet.

And toilet stuff in it.

According to FOX NEWS:

The modern masterpiece was created by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan as a nod to Marcel Duchamp’s seminal work “Fountain,” a urinal presented as a sculpture that debuted in 1917. But Cattelan’s work can actually be used by the public—and is meant to highlight what the museum describes as Americans’ increasing obsession with wealth and excess.

Masterpiece? Now, I don't know about all that. To me, most modern art is synonymous with what goes in regular toilets. But you have to admit, the idea of having a constitutional on 70 pounds of gold sounds kinda fancy, and....well....nice.

Here's a brief video from AFP News highlighting the gilded potty.

And with the price of gold as it is now (approx. $1,300 per ounce), that puts the market value of this Royal Throne at about $1 million to $1.7 million. Museum officials say the exhibit will be open indefinitely.
