Artist Builds Forest Giants from Salvaged Materials and Hides Them in the Woods for People to Find

 

Forgotten Giants” is an awesome project by Thomas Dambo that consists of 6 large sculptures made in the outskirts of Copenhagen, Denmark.

The six larger than life sculptures were made solely from local scrap wood and recycled materials and assembled with the help of volunteers. Dambo says the sculptures were built mostly from 600 old pallets, an old wooden shed, and a fence. Each of the sculptures was named after one of the volunteers that helped build it.

“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.”

 

Below you will find the big friendly giants along with the treasure map in case you’re ever in Copenhagen. To see more art from Dambo, check him out at the links below!
