Jaromir Jagr is one of the greatest NHL players to ever lace up the skates. He may also be the only one to ever have the honor of being made into a marzipan statue.When Jaromir Jagr entered the NHL, he said he only had one dream: have his likeness represented as a statue made entirely of marzipan. All right, probably not. But at least that’s some sort of explanation for how this incredible statue of the Czech superstar came to be. In any case, behold the majesty of the confectionary Jagr:
In Tabor, Czech Rep., there is a statue of Jaromir Jagr made of marzipan #Legend @NHLDevils pic.twitter.com/B7FTH9XsK7 — Tereza Novotná (@TerezaNovotna) November 12, 2014Fantastic. The detail on the hair really brings the whole thing together. Amongst Jagr’s long list of achievements, this is certainly one. Whether it ranks ahead of his Stanley Cups, Olympic gold, Art Ross, Hart, or Lester B. Pearson Trophies, it would be hard to say, but chances are he’s got a special place in his heart for a giant, candy version of himself.
