Thomas Dambo, an artist from Denmark, is making the best out of waste and is recycling trash into wonderful sculptures.
The giant sculptures are a group effort, with local volunteers helping Dambo assemble the works. Made from 600 wood pallets, a shed, and an old fence, the scavenged wood comes together to produce amazing hidden giants. Each is named after a volunteer and can be found using a map Dambo prepared or a poem engraved into stones near the sculptures.
From small projects like making furniture out of waste to jaw-dropping giant statues, Thomas is inspiring people to recycle, that something amazing can be made out of things we discard and throw away. Using pallets, sheds, and old fences and other garbage, the hunt of 6 forgotten giants is like a treasure hunt, only this time your treasure is nature. “All six sculptures are made from scrap wood with the help of local volunteers, and is the first chapter of Thomas Dambo’s ongoing story: “The great story of the little people and the giant trolls”. The project wants to bring art out of the museum, show the beautiful and often overlooked nature spots, and at the same time give an exciting and different experience,” reads the description of the hunt for giant trolls. Below are the 6 giants who are hiding in the forest, waiting for you to be discovered.
