    UK ∙ Twelve-foot-tall Mr. Darcy sculpture looms out of the Serpentine

    Mr Darcy surfaces as statue in London lake. (Guardian)
    The notorious scene in the nation's favourite BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, in which Colin Firth as Mr Darcy emerges wet-shirted and dripping from the lake of his country estate after an impromptu swim, has been celebrated in the shape of a 12-foot sculpture of the romantic hero.

    The statue of superhuman proportions has been temporarily installed in the Serpentine lake in Hyde Park, London, and will tour the UK before settling at its final home in Lyme Park, Cheshire, where the eye-catching scene was filmed.

    Things-found-in-the-water-ologists, however, doubt this is related to the seven-foot fiberglass head found floating in the Hudson. (see the infamous WS link) For one thing, this Jane Austen character does already appear to have a head on its shoulders.
