Go on your own treasure hunt to meet the giants!

What do you think about the possibility of meeting a giant in the forest? No, it’s not a Lord of The Rings thing. A Danish artist has made it real, as he created 25 big sculptures using recycled materials and placed them all around the world, with 6 of them hidden in the forests of his hometown in Copenhagen.

Thomas Dambo spent his last three years collecting 600 old pallets, tearing down old wooden shed, shabby fences and other materials he could scavenge to build giant structures depicting various characters of human-like giants. He had some help from local volunteers to build the sculptures and he named each sculpture after one volunteer.

He also created a treasure hunt game for those who want to see his artworks in Copenhagen. Each giant was placed in different parts of the city, in off the beaten tracks. They can only be found by tracking down the path with a help of a treasure map, or a poem engraved into a stone near each giant. The poems contain hints to find the next giant.

“I hope my art will inspire people to see the big potential in recycling and taking better care of our planet,” he said.
