Apparently no one at the Fiesta Bowl has ever heard of the phrase, "Less is more." It's like someone made a trophy, then someone else stuck another trophy on top of it. And then someone else walked in the room and said, "Hey, you know what? We should put another trophy on top of all this other shit."
In all, this monstrosity measures 46-inches tall and weighs 200 pounds. It features marble, diamonds, silver, 19kt (yellow, green, pink and white) gold and is internally LED lit with illumination through the landscape, dome, Fiesta Bowl logo and the diamonds. Holy crap!
