Thems Some Crazy Girls

For an ass man, the Crazy Girls statue in front of the Riviera Casino must be nirvana.

I love watching the tourists pose with the bronze buttocks. Everybody from midwest grandmas to drunken fratboys to shy Japanese teens stand next the borderline obscene public art and grin a silly grin. Many rub the posteriors (for good luck I suppose?) which is why the finish is missing on many of the cheeks.

The original models posed for this work in the late 1990's. I wonder how good they would look today if a reunion picture was taken? I'm guessing there would be a lot more dimples.
