Six Large Wood Giants Are Now Hiding Out In A Forest Near Copenhagen

Hidden in the forest on the outskirts of Copenhagen, Denmark, are six large recycled wood giants by artist Thomas Dambo, that can be found via a treasure map.

 

Artist Thomas Dambo has brought to life a new project: “The 6 Forgotten Giants.” The project consists of six large hidden sculptures, made from various types of recycled wood, with the help of local volunteers in Copenhagen. The recycled wood used for the breathtaking giants varies from scrap wood, to cut offs from old trees, to buildings that have been torn down.

The aim of this project is to bring art out of the museum and show the alluring nature of the outskirts of Western Copenhagen. Each giant is hidden in a beautiful location, and Thomas encourages individuals to go on a treasure hunt, using the map to find them.

Little Tilde hides in the forest and looks through a set of trees. She looks over to the opposite side of the lake where a viewer can catch a glimpse of her from the other side. As a bonus, Thomas filled Little Tilde with 28 bird houses so birds can seek shelter in the winter.
