Danish Artist Hide Giants That He Makes From Wood In The Wilderness

This is definitely one of the cooler displays of art I’ve seen this year.   Thomas Dambo is a Danish artist who works with recycled materials. Over the last 3 years he’s made 25 big recycled sculptures around the world. Recently he made 6 hidden giants in his hometown of Copenhagen.  Thomas describes the project as such:

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. 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 what ever else I was able to scavenge. Every sculpture was made with the help from 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.
