Artist Creates Wooden Giants And Hides Them In The Danish Wilderness

Published 5 years ago

Meet Thomas Dambo, a Danish artist who works with recycled materials. Over the last 3 years, he made 25 enormous recycled sculptures around the world. And recently he has crafted 6 hidden giants in his hometown of Copenhagen.

“The sculptures are found in some of my favorite places around the city, places where people don’t go to often because it’s off the beaten track,” Thomas told Bored Panda. “The sculptures can only be found by using a treasure map, or a poem engraved into a stone near each sculpture. These give hints on how to find the different giants.”

“I’ve made all the sculptures from recycled wood. Mainly from 600 old pallets, an old wooden shed, a fence and whatever else I was able to scavenge. Every sculpture was made with the help of local volunteers, and each of the sculptures was named after one of the volunteers.”

“I hope my art will inspire people to see the big potential in recycling and taking better care of our planet.”
