Because you just can’t get enough of Colin Firth’s lake scene from the Pride and Prejudice mini-series, now there’s even more sodden Colin Firth. About 12 feet more.

Eventually the statue will be relocated to Lyme Park, where the original scene was filmed.
And because (maybe) you can’t get enough of giant sculptures of literary characters, here’s more!
