Giant Statue? Can't Post

this has been bugging me fore some time In blog 6 of quint's blogs on the filming of The Hobbit he mentioned a location where they were going to digitally add a giant statue here is the quote

Between that epic vista and the crazy massive waterfall (and super rare moss) this location was visually stunning and I understand this place also plays a very important role in the journey. I know there is going to be a giant statue put into this location digitally. All the dwarves and Bilbo were down there looking for something. I can say no more

anyway here is the link to the blog it has pics too I don't know how to upload pics on here lol

I remember seeing this location in the Vlogs where they had to build scaffolding cause the moss was old and they didn't want to destroy it. but maybe this location also doubles as a different location in the movie I still don't understand what the giant statue was unless he means the carrock which has a bear head at the top but could it technically be called a statue? or is it another place entirely that we haven't seen yet or is it just one of the giant statues seen at Erebor that he meant?
