Hawaiian King Kamehameha Statue
Las Vegas, Nevada
King Kamehameha I, the ruler who unified the kingdom of Hawaii during his reign from 1795-1819, is respected on those islands and commemorated with a large gold-robed statue in a few places. But in Las Vegas, along the Strip, the noble Hawaiian leader is reduced to inviting tourists to buy discount t-shirts and temporary tattoos at the Hawaiian Marketplace.
The statue may be almost as large as the island versions, but is dwarfed by Vegas proportions. A couple of giant M&M's from down the street could beat up Kamehameha and stuff him into a giant Coke bottle.
