It's your last chance to pee in this solid gold toilet at the Guggenheim

You have just three weeks left to sit on this (literal) golden throne.

The fully-functional 18-karat gold toilet installed in the Guggenheim as part of the "America" exhibition will be removed on September 15. The piece from artist Maurizio Cattelan has been popular with visitors, some waiting in line an hour or more to try it out, the New York Times reports. More than 100,000 people have taken the opportunity to "commune with art and with nature,” says artistic director and chief curator Nancy Spector. This begs the question: Which bathroom is fancier? This solid-gold one, or the spanking new ones in Bryant Park?

No word on whether Poo-Pourri is readily available inside the stall.
