London sources stated that unique solid gold toilet that was part of an art exhibit was stolen early Saturday from the magnificent home in england where British wartime leader Winston Churchill was born. Meanwhile the toilet, valued at roughly 1 million pounds (USD 1.25 million), was the work of Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan. It had been installed only two days earlier at Blenheim Palace, west of London, after previously being shown to appreciative audiences at the Guggenheim Museum in New York.

Furthermore police said the toilet was taken early Saturday by thieves who used at least two vehicles. Because it had been connected to the palace’s plumbing system, police said the toilet’s removal caused “significant damage and flooding” to the building, a UNESCO World Heritage site filled with valuable art and furniture.



Moreover a 66 year old man was arrested in the case, but he has not been identified or charged. Perhaps Inspector richard Nicholls from Thames Valley Police said police believe the thieves left the spacious property about 4:50 a.m. and that the toilet was the only item taken and closed circuit TV footage is being studied in the investigation. Apparently prior to the theft, visitors to the Cattelan exhibition could book a three minute appointment to use the toilet and this had proved popular when the toilet was on display at the Guggenheim.
