Giant Wood Sculptures 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.

People are encouraged to go on a treasure hunt around Copenhagen to find the giant sculptures, using a map or clues found in poems near each artwork.

Dambo makes each recycled sculpture with the help of volunteers, who come with all types of experience.
