Las Vegas by makepictures Las Vegas by makepictures
"Fountain" in the shopping center that is part of the sprawling hotel/casino complex called Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, NV. Only the water is authentically water though its source is a pipe running to the third floor.  The scale, large to excessive.  The statue of Zeus/Poseidon is twice life sized.  This image sums up my sentiments about everything in Las Vegas and is undistorted (by me) other than by selecting a 28mm equivalent lens. I didn't see a My Little Pony store in the complex but Hasbro should certainly consider locating one near this edifice!

I wonder how all these impressive construction and pieces of art (replica, likely) are made for Vegas? Are they build to last or are they "disposable" in a way? This for sure looks very impressive.

A slightly better version of papier mache.  I'm being a little unfair but they are some form of cast resin, not sculpted stone.  It is the same approach taken at building things for an amusement park.  Everything is part of a set and in that sense not real.

I live up in Reno, and I must say that these are definitely some exquisite pieces of art. There's one quite similar to this in a casino up here as well. Thanks for sharing this!
P.S - I'm really shocked Hasbro hasn't set up a shop here yet! ;)
