Las Vegas places a high premium on the appreciation of the classics. It is a classy, classy place.
Consider, if you will, this example of statuary outside Caesar's Palace.
Is this a gryphon? My eldest says it's a Greek sphinx, traditionally depicted as a winged lion with a woman's head.
The Las Vegas version is traditionally depicted as a winged lion with the face of a cocktail waitress and stripper boobs.
