A new display was recently unveiled at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, celebrating Copperfield's recent award from the Society of American Magicians naming him as "Magician of the Century." The award is accompanied by a new bust of David. According to Vegas Chatter:
But it's the bronze statue that'll first catch your eye. It cleverly pays tribute to Copperfield's most iconic magical stagings, including vanishing the Statue of Liberty, walking through the Great Wall of China and his much missed, "Flying" illusion. We have to say, it's a really well created piece. But, you will have to ignore the joksters working the table games in front of the statue. We heard them comparing the bust to Bill Clinton, Steve Lawrence, Mitt Romney and a cascade of others. No respect for a King. Tut, tut.
