Cinderella Shoe

Item details

Chinese artist Liao Yibai created the massive Cinderella Shoe found at the MGM National Harbor Resort & Casino. It is a 12-foot polished stainless steel adorning the main entrance leading from casino porte-cochere to conservatory. The artist's works illustrate the challenges he faced during childhood, and his paralleled fascination with American culture. The work examines this increasing obsession with opulence and luxury goods while discrediting and glorifying it simultaneously. Yibai is inspired by China's lucrative fake antique industry as well and the ubiquitous "Made in China" tag which adorns a majority of imported goods in the U.S.
