“FAUX ROCK STATUE”

Genre: Cosmic Adventure Running time: 10 minutes (contains no material likely to offend or harm) Stunt Location: Pacific-Antarctica Ridge, hydrothermal vents, North Antarctica, 0°0’S 46°30’W Equipment: Twin Two-Twelve helicopter (weight drop), 1 x 1-tonne weight, underwater sound system with sonar and 2 hydrophones, 2 floating spheres, 2 buoys, and 1 mooring. Props: polystyrene faux statue attached to the weight, lactone, and underwater spotlights. Synopsis: a faux statue is found trapped in the ice. The creator of this statue was certainly very well informed about the details and characteristics of Assyrian, Egyptian and Maya sculptures. He blended them all together to create a faux work of art. He then organised an expedition to Antarctica to hide the statue in the ice. The statue is still the result of great expertise. The work was later awarded the Grand Prix of Fictional Archaeology.
