Michael Jackson’s Statue Unveiled in Las Vegas

The statue comissioned by Michael Jackson that became the inspiration for his legendary HIStory album was unveiled today in Las Vegas. The 10-foot high statue, a likeness of Jackson, was installed in the lobby of Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino during a ceremony on Thursday, July 28.

American sculptor Diana Walczak created the statue, which inspired the cover image of his fifth solo album HIStory: Past, Present and Future Book 1. The acclaimed album became the biggest selling multiple disc album worldwide. The statue was featured at stops on Michael’s HIStory Tour.

On loan from the Estate of Michael Jackson, the statue is the third piece of memorabilia to be loaned by the Estate for display on the Mandalay Bay property; the other 2 pieces, Michael’s red and gold military style jacket from his appearance at the 1984 American Music Awards and a pair of his iconic black loafers and crystal-encrusted white socks, are currently on display in cases adjacent to the Michael Jackson ONE Boutique.

An additional historical Jackson item to be loaned by the Estate will be revealed on Saturday, Aug. 27, to kick-off a three-day birthday celebration event planned for The King of Pop inside the ONE theatre. This will be the 4th annual celebration organized by the Estate and Michael Jackson ONE for Michael’s birthday.
