Art can take many forms, and this is certainly one we did not see coming (link to the full photo at the bottom).

According to the Tampa Bay Times, a Danish Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! has acquired the toilet a heavy metal musician and visual artist from Tampa, Florida sculpted to look like Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich.

The artist known as Prince Midnight gifted the throne, which will soon be shipped to the Ripley’s “odditorium” in Copenhagen, where it will be put on permanent display.

According to Midnight, the piece being an insult to the drummer is “absolutely not the case.”

“This toilet was built by a Metallica super fan,” he told the Tampa Bay Times. “They wrote the first songs that meant something to me.” He says he chose to depict Ulrich in toilet form because Lars “as the drummer, is usually depicted sitting.”

“I could have done a urinal with James [Hetfield],” he added, “but that’s not where the creative spirit was leading me.”
