Has the statue, which seems so large and overpowering, got any significance to the name of the mall or city it's in?

For some reason, it's coming up as The Forum Shops at Ceasars Palace at Las Vegas but child's put some programme on that I'm trying to work out how to delete so I'm can hunt pics properly. At the moment, it's coming up rather dodgy.

Hans, I don't know whether to put that in as a guess or not for the simple reason that darling child has put some inconvenient program on and I'm having a rather frustrating time looking things up properly except if it's in "favourites". Thinking that I may have to reset my internet connections *blah, blah frustrations* now. It is up to you to accept it as a guess or not, I'll accept either answer.

Sorry Jube, you would have found this if it were not for the glitch in your computer.

Please read post 14, Lily. I said the same thing as you did but wasn't sure due to computer glitch. Hans had the choice of answering it or not. He chose not to. He may say yes or no as you've asked the same thing.

Jube, your post was unclear, that is why I specifically asked you if it was a guess or not in post #17, as it didn't seem to be one in the whole post. That's life I guess.

Lily: Yes!


Here's a shot of part of said shopping mall (forum) with the griffin in the middle. In this pic it looks much smaller

My fatal glitch in the system has unearthed me as it did appear that way. Oh well, I wasn't sure if it was or not ... WELL DONE LILY for confirming it for me.

Was this taken when you went to America recently?
