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!

Las Vegas has a fake Venice (fake St Marks's Square and fake canals with fake bridges), a fake Paris (mostly a fake Left bank and a fake Eiffel Tower), a fake Egypt (a fake pyramid), a fake Medieval castle, a fake volcano that erupts every hour, a fake British Man-of War battleship from the late 1700's with a fake Pirate ship that attacks it every hour and a half, a fake Rome, and just about any other fake thing (jewelry, women, men, music, money, designer clothing) that you can think of.

So one could call it Faketown or Fakeville -Fakeville sounds better I think :)

I never went to the United States nor to Vegas but I love how you depict it -some kind of copycat zoo where Fake is a new divinity :nod:

You make me want to go there just for the sake of shooting all these "papier maché" wonders!

Certainly go to Las Vegas to see the fakes but I would recommend traveling to see the real places first.

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.
