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.
