Four men were charged on Monday for stealing a toilet, not just any toilet an 18-carat gold toilet.
They stole the magnificent piece from from Blenheim Palace, the sprawling English country mansion where British wartime leader Winston Churchill was born.
The toilet is valued at 4.8 million pounds (13,365,106 FJD) was an artwork titled “America” and intended as a pointed satire about excessive wealth by Italian conceptual artist Maurizio Cattelan. It was part of an art installation at Blenheim Palace, near the city of Oxford, a few days before it vanished overnight in September 2019.
What a masterpiece.
