Pinball of Hall of Fame ~ Moved

Since the Rivera is no more, the museum was moved to another location. They have an array of 1960's era pinball machines. What is very unique about this is you can actually play on them. They are not just for looks. The museum is Free to get into.

Crazy Girls Monument~Relocated

Update: “Crazy Girls” is currently in Sin City Theater at Planet Hollywood, where the longtime topless burlesque moved after the Riviera closed on May 4 after 60 years on the Strip.

The Crazy Girls Monument created by artist Michael Conine. Dedicated on May 13th 1997 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the "THE CRAZY GIRLS" show. As you can tell, the butts are being rubbed a lot for good luck....lol!

The Three Graces~

I found a blurb on the internet that two of these sculptures were favorite cocktail-waitresses from the early days of Caesar's in Las Vegas. I wonder if it is true. It is the center piece of the check in lobby of Caesars Palace. Even if it is not true, its still a lovely piece of art!

The Hand of Faith Nugget

The Golden Nugget Casino and Hotel has a very unique treasure. Located within the casino area is "The Hand of Faith Nugget." This magnificent gold nugget, the largest on public display in the world. Was discovered using a metal detector by Kevin Hillier near Kingower, Victoria, Australia on 26 September 1980. It was lying six inches below the surface in a vertical position. It weighs a massive 875 troy ounces. (61 pounds, 11 ounces av.) Mr. Hillier and his family were prospecting behind their modest trailer home when they found it.

Monte Carlo Hidden Statues

I think these wonderful statues get overlooked because they sit back from strip and not too many people venture inward to see them. There are about either 5 or 6 statues located with enclaves and a very impressive fountain that is the centerpiece on the strip in front of Monte Carlo Casino and Hotel.

This was sculpted by artist Stuart Land who has done beautiful work for many of the mega hotels in Las Vegas. He used some of my photo's in his website.

The Bridge of Sighs~Venetian

I am not sure if anyone has really notice this hidden fasade along the front of the Venetian Hotel & Casino. It's called the "The Bridge of Sighs". Duplicated after the real one in Venice Italy that was used to connect Doge's Palace to the Prigioni (Prisons) located on the other side and it was built in 1600.

The Rialto Bridge ~Venetian

This replica is located in front of the Venetian Hotel & Casino. Called The Rialto Bridge, the original is located in Venice Italy and it spans the Grand Canal in Venice. Built in 1181, it had many misfortunes. It burnt in the revolt led by Bajamonte Tiepolo in 1310 and collapsed in 1524. It was rebuilt and designed by Antonio da Pont in 1591.

This one is used for pedestrian access to the hotel and to Madame Tussauds wax museum. It is also the gateway and entrance of the front desk check in area.

Earth Warriors Sculptors~The Cosmopolitan

Located on second level near the convention area or group meeting spaces are these wonderful sculptures by Sculptor Cheryl Ekstrom. They are very tall and made out of stainless steel and bronze. They are called "Earth Warriors" that represent the five Chinese Elements of earth, fire, metal, water, and wood. My family thought they are wonderful.
