The first statue is located near London Bridge and is 46-feet long and 10-feet high. It features a life-like swimmer swimming through the grass. The statue is made out of polystyrene and is hand painted to resemble human flesh.

The second statue is located at Victoria Station. If features a giant woman trying to get into a photo booth.

A spokeswoman for The Discovery Channel said: “We created these because we want people to interact with them. We want people to get out their camera phones and take pictures of them, and of their friends with them. We want to create a real stir.”
