Artist creates giant wood sculptures and hides them in Copenhagen forests

Over the last three years, Danish artist Thomas Dambo has been creating enormous sculptures from recycled materials. Most recently, he sprinkled six of his friendly giants around Copenhagen as a way to encourage people to visit the offbeat areas of his hometown.

The giant sculptures are a group effort, with local volunteers helping Dambo assemble the works. Made from 600 wood pallets, a shed, and an old fence, the scavenged wood comes together to produce incredible hidden giants. Each is named after a volunteer and can be found using a map Dambo prepared or a poem engraved into stones near the sculptures. “It invites the viewers to go on a treasure hunt, not only to see the sculptures, but also to discover hidden gems in nature,” Dambo shares.
