Marc-Andre Fleury‘s greatest save continues to inspire people in Las Vegas.

A Las Vegas-based artist created a life-sized plastic brick statue of the Vegas Golden Knights goalie, which is on display at the Circa Resort and Casino.

Chris Ihle was inspired by watching Fleury’s now-famous Superman save on Toronto Maple Leafs forward Nic Petan on Nov. 19.

Ihle used more than 77,000 plastic bricks to create the sculpture, which stands in his personal gallery on the second floor of the newest casino and resort in Las Vegas, and the work took more than four months to complete.

It is not the first time Fleury has inspired a giant work of art in Las Vegas. 

In 2018, during the team’s run to the Stanely Cup Final in their inaugural season, a 120-pound likeness of the goalie made out of chocolate turned up at the Bellagio Hotel.

Ihle, who is originally from Ames, Iowa but moved to Las Vegas two years ago, also produced a brick statue of Golden Knights forward Mark Stone that is on display.
