Artist Hides Giants That he Makes From Wood In The Wilderness Of Copenhagen


Thomas Dambo, is a Danish artist who works with recycled materials. Over the last 3 years he made 25 big recycled sculptures around the world. Recently he made 6 hidden giants in my hometown of Copenhagen. The sculptures are found in some of his 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.

He has made all the sculptures from recycled wood. Mainly from 600 old pallets, an old wooden shed, a fence and what ever else he 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.

He hopes his art will inspire people to see the big potential in recycling and taking better care of our planet.
