Twentieth Century Fox's ape-mazing ice sculpture in Covent Garden

Something ice cold arrived at London's Covent Garden on the morning of Monday 27th November, a life-sized ice sculpture of Caesar on horseback to mark the release of War For The Planet of the Apes on Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital Download.

Members of the public froze in their tracks as they encountered the enormous 2.2m tall ice sculpture featuring the trilogy’s most iconic character, Caesar who is brought to life in the films by Andy Serkis. The winter blues were lifted as Londoners were given the opportunity to come face-to-face with the realistic hero as he towered over JCDecaux’s Seven Dials site in Covent Garden.

Created by award winning Glacial Arts, Creative Director, Mat Foster said: “After a five-day construction process, 100 man hours in a -14 degree full scale industrial fridge, two giant ice blocks imported from Belgium weighing in at 3 tonnes (approximately 3000 litres of water) and four chainsaws (amongst other tools) to ensure every single detail is perfect, we are so excited to showcase one of our biggest ice creations to date. I’m a huge fan of the trilogy so to have the opportunity to bring such an iconic character to life in ice has been very cool indeed! Using many reference images, we sculpted Caesar and his horse exact size to make it as realistic as possible!”
