Remember that cunning trick they did when filming the Lord of The Rings, that made the 6′8" Sir Ian McKellan look taller than the 5′3" Elijah Wood? Lots of really smart jiggery-pokery with camera angles to fool your eye into thinking things were smaller than they were?
Well, have a look at the sculpture again, but this time as a moving picture:
Pretty cool, huh?
