Smurf Statue

When the idea of creating a Smurf statue was presented to Studio Peyo, they first did some research to find the appropriate pose and attitude. Numerous sketches were made and given the impressive size of the statue the scale of the Smurf needed to be expressed so he was placed on a mushroom. He also needed to look his usual warm and friendly self so was given a broad smurfy smile, thus inviting people to come into the gallery or to come and pose next to him.
