Many may have seen the Las Vegas Pink Elephant, but not too many might have noticed it. The old historic Diamond Inn Motel used to be the only motel with a swimming pool in the city. This was in the 70’s when the owners decided to bring the pink elephant from Disney World. You can still see it today, right across from Mandalay Bay on Las Vegas strip.
Those who know about it come here every time they are in Vegas and check if the pachyderm is still there :) I saw it and photographed it too – poor elephant has now a broken trunk, but it’s still so cute :) He’s still proudly guarding the swimming pool at what is now one of the cheapest motels on the strip. The sign saying “Rooms Available” is still standing. Will they decide to remodel it some day?
I really hope that in the future, somebody will decide to restore the elephant though!

But while waiting for the future to come, I decided myself to give him a new look in advance :) Therefore, I made it as a digital painting to advertise it, and maybe send an impulse to those in charge…
Here is is my cute historic elephant digitally restored somehow :)
Do you like it?
You can have it printed as a nostalgic souvenir from Las Vegas. Just click on the picture for details:
And I think that a tote bag can be a good idea too for all your Las Vegas shopping ;)
That’s true: Las Vegas is full of surprises, and you never know what you will see there :)
