With a generation that is consistently obsessed with avocado, one can easily expect unconventional new avocado creations every now and then. But here’s a new one that is a definite eye-popper: A Solid Gold Avocado Bagel Toast.
Symbolising the millennial demographic also described as the Avocado Toast Generation, German contemporary artist Tim Bengel pieced together a fascinating curation of the avocado toast, made entirely from 18k solid gold that costs $3 million!
The artwork is a 3D sculptural design that is made using 27 different parts which amount to over 12 pounds of 18-karat gold. These include two bagel halves, five tomato slices, 10 arugula leaves, five onion rings and five avocado strips.
Titled “Who Wants to Live Forever?” the gold bagel is currently being featured at the Avocado Club in a $47,000 case, although it made its debut during the Berlin Art Week on September 19.
Bengel refers to the avocado as “Green Gold”, calling it a ‘symbol’ of the millennial generation. Bengel also shared a video montage on Instagram that reveals the 3-D design and printing process of the intricate design.
Talking about his extraordinary creation, Bengel said, “For me, the avocado is one of the symbols of the Millennial generation. And I want to capture the Zeitgeist in this work,”
