Statue of Colin Firth's Mr. Darcy rises from London lake

It’s Colin Firth, but not as we know him. He’s 12 feet tall and made of fiberglass.

A statue of brooding Mr. Darcy, the character played by Firth in Pride and Prejudice was installed Monday in London’s Serpentine lake. (See a photo here.)

The figure shows Darcy emerging from the water in a soaked shirt, re-creating a scene from the 1995 television adaptation of Jane Austen’s novel.

The scene helped turn Firth into a sex symbol and is regularly voted among Britain’s most memorable TV moments.

One of the sculptors, Toby Crowther, said the work took the lake scene as a starting point but also drew on other depictions of Austen’s romantic hero.
