Tom Jones Tribute Bathroom.

The Tom Jones Throne

A delightful 5x7 lavatory devoted to the likenesses and embellishments of the one and only Tom Jones. With several glossy 8x10s and other, larger, photos of Tom in action and in intimate situations, you are surrounded by his manly prowess while conducting your business. There is also a little comfort added by the combination of Chinese red walls and a few cherubs lit by the 14-inch disco ball. Truly a magnificent way to pay respect to the legend.
