Las Vegas MGM Lion Statute Largest Bronze in US

MGM Lion Statue was cast in 1,600 individual half inch thick plates.  The total height of the statue is 70 feet including the 25 feet pedestal.  Weight of the statue is 100,000 lbs. That's one big statute.  The Statue is located in front of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.  It is at the corner of Las Vegas Blvd and Tropicana. 

Las Vegas has a lot of very impresssive sights that people drive by without a second thought.  Some  of these are reproduction or scaled down versions of the real thing.  Like the Statue of Liberity.  This is a one of a kind.
