Vegas Yesterday. The Original Corinthian Capitals in Situ.

My friend Janice Lawrence sent me this photo after reading about the Corinthian Capital I sculpted for Las Vegas. 

Here are the original Corinthian Capitals in context in 
The  Forum.  As in Rome, Italy. 

The only problem is that the recreations are translucent plastic not marble. The image looks like a bad Photoshop job.  Which makes me wonder how unreal the actual site looks. It's hard to trust reality or it's stand in these days.

Maybe they could install lights inside the replacement columns to glow with changing colors at night. Disco Forum anyone?.
