This is Danish artist Thomas Dambo.

 

He builds giants and leaves them in the forests of Copenhagen for people to find as part of an art installation named The Six Forgotten Giants.

 

Little Tilde

 

All of his sculptures are made from local scrap wood and recycled materials, and constructed in hidden locations. He then invites adventurers to go on treasure hunts to find them.

 

 

It’s Dambo’s way of encouraging people to appreciate the trails in the area and get out into nature. He also hopes to inspire people to have fun and think of trash as a resource.
