Members of the public are being invited to spend a penny in a solid gold toilet at New York City's Guggenheim Museum.

Italian artist and sculptor Maurizio Cattelan created the fully functional 18-carat gold lavatory, which he has titled America.

The, ahem, interactive exhibit has been installed in one of the Guggenheim's public bathrooms, reports the New Yorker.

Visitors who pay museum admission will be able to use it as they wish.

The exhibit is aimed at "making available to the public an extravagant luxury product seemingly intended for the 1 percent", according to the museum.

Maurizio Cattelan hinted his creation was inspired by economic inequality.

90% of life is "showing up"

I fully expect someone with a hacksaw, screwdriver or file to routinely visit that throne...

by the end of 6 months someone will attempt to cut, file, or unbolt pieces of it. just wait.

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...
