One Hotel north of the Bellagio is another Italian-themed establishment though considerably more over-the-top. Although the sprawling complex with multiple giant buildings is super-sized compared to the Las Vegas casinos of yore, it preserves some of that flashy, more-is-better aesthetic.
I’m talking about Caesars Palace, with interiors adorned with marble and generously populated with white statues of Italian goddesses and fearless leaders. It’s certainly not my style of architecture, though I enjoyed that place for its visual craziness.
This elaborate dragon anchored the transition space between the casino and the shopping mall. The sparkly sculpture fits in with the feel of the place — though it just sat there out of context. It wasn’t my favorite but worth a snap to document and blog about in this series.
