Last Chance to See Rare Cherub Statue at Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition Inside Luxor Hotel and Casino

Last Chance to See Rare Cherub Statue at Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition Inside Luxor Hotel and CasinoOn Labor Day 2015, the only cherub statue to ever be recovered from the “Ship of Dreams” will be removed from its temporary display at Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition inside Luxor Hotel and Casino

Brought in for a limited-time engagement, the bronze statue made its Las Vegas debut in Feb. 2015 and is the latest artifact to be installed in nearly two years. Originally scheduled to be removed in March, the cherub’s engagement was extended due to popular demand.

Visitors who purchase general admission tickets will get one last chance to see the rare statue before its removal from the historic gallery.

A popular decorative piece during that time period, cherubs are found throughout the White Star Liner with larger figures located in the Grand Staircase. Though its torch and left foot are missing, this particular cherub is thought to have been a light fixture on the aft staircase connecting the Promenade Deck to the C Deck. The statue spent decades in the depths of the Atlantic Ocean before being recovered during the R.M.S. Titanic Inc.s 1987 expedition. Molded drapery and ribbons are still visible on the body and serve as a reminder of what still remains at the bottom of the ocean.
