Artist Creates And Hides Huge Wooden Giants Around Copenhagen Wilderness

Meet Thomas Dambo, a Danish artist who operates with recycled wood. Over the last three years, he made 25 large recycled sculptures around the world. And lately, he has crafted six secret giants in Copenhagen.

“The models are found in some of my beloved places around the city, places where people don’t go to often because it’s off the beaten track,” Thomas said to Bored Panda. “The figures can only be found by using a treasure map, or a poem embedded into a stone near each figure. These give clues on how to find the various giants.”

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

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