A $3 million piece of avocado toast made of solid gold is for sale and it is meant to symbolise millennials

Avocado on toast can really break the bank but this one is really taking the p*ss.

Tim Bengel is a German contemporary artist selling a solid golden pumpkin-seeded baget with rocket, tomato, onion, and avocado for $3 million. He says it represents the millennial generation.

The bagel, which obviously isn’t edible unless you fancy knocking a few teeth out, is entitled “Who Wants To Live Forever?” and has 27 individual parts that amount to 12 pounds of 18-karat gold. According to the artist, one slice of avo costs $14,000.

He posted a video on Instagram claiming that he 3D-scanned a real bagel, which he then ate, to create the artwork.

He said:

“For me, the avocado is one of the symbols of the Millennial generation. And I want to capture the zeitgeist in this work.”

In another post after its release, he added: “It’s been a wild five days since the release of my sculpture. Much love, much hate, much discussion. I’m excited to see how the journey of the work will continue.”

If you have a spare $3 million lying about then you can purchase the bagel by contacting the Galerie Rother in Wiesbaden. Or you can buy some real avocados. It’s up to you.
