King Kamehameha I at the Hawaiian Marketplace.

Hawaiian King Kamehameha Statue (Gone)

Field review by the editors.

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.
