If you are a fellow food enjoyer like me and use Instagram, I can bet that avocado toast is an omnipresent entity on the food-specific people and pages you follow. For some reason, this dish has become the symbol of the zoomers who wish to appear lavish and health-conscious. Now, I don’t hate the fact that they enjoy this devilish delight. But, it does tend to get a bit old after a few dozen close-ups of the thing.
Perhaps this is why artist Tim Bengel decided to impart the Midas touch to the avocado toast and make it fun again and made it out of gold. After all, there is no easier and better way to make something ten times more luxurious.
The Golden Toast.
Now, you may think that this is just a glorified toast with some gold leaves on it, but that will be the furthest from the truth. What Mr. Bengel has made is quite epic. The Avocado-Bagel aus Gold is made entirely out of solid gold and takes the form of a bagel sandwich with all the required accompaniments.
This thing weighs 26 pounds and will be displayed in a $47,000 case at the Berlin Art Week and the Art Basel. As for how you can get it, you will simply have to fork out $2.9 million, and you will be able to take it home. Just don’t try to eat it. After all, gold may be edible, but this much surely won’t do you any good.
