Colin Firth`s wet shirt scene gets 12-feet sculpture tribute

London: Colin Firth`s famous wet white shirt scene in the BBC adaptation of Jane Austen`s classic novel ‘Pride and Prejudice’ has been immortalised in the shape of a 12-feet sculpture of the romantic hero.

The scene which set viewers` heart racing has been commemorated in an unusual way with a giant version of the character Mr Darcy emerging from the Serpentine lake in London`s Hyde Park, reported Sun online.

The fibre-glass made sculpture took a team of three sculptors more than two months to design, construct and paint.

The statue is equivalent to the height of a double decker bus.

"We took Colin Firth`s famous lake scene as a starting point for creating Mr Darcy... The challenge for us was capturing the spirit of Darcy as handsome and noble but also aloof and proud. The Mr Darcy sculpture is a real mix of the many portrayals of Jane Austen`s most famous hero," said Toby Crowther, lead sculptor.
