Extraordinary Giant Recycled Sculpture On Display In Parks And Forests – Outside the Museum

Visiting an art exhibition might be a fun destination. Some artists will hold an exhibition to let others see their work. However, it turns out that not all artists think that way. One artist named Thomas Dambo actually hides his extraordinary works of art in the forest and parks.

Using pieces of wood and building scraps, Danish artist Thomas Dambo created a giant sculpture that is quite scary. The recycled statue is shaped like a mythical creature and fairy tale.

For example, a troll creature in its hand holding a swing for children to play. “My intention is to make a sculpture to inspire others to recycle this wood material into creative forms,”

Danish artist Thomas Dambo has spent approximately three years creating 25 giant sculptures made of used wood almost all over the world. Not only that, 6 of them were hidden in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The six giant sculptures can apparently be found in some of Thomas’s favorite places around the city of Copenhagen, which little is known about. According to Thomas, these sculptures can only be found using the treasure map he made, and when he finds one, a note will also be found on the sculpture which serves as a pointer to find the next giant sculptures. Thomas was helped by the community who offered to help.

His goal is that he hopes people will momentarily leave behind modern life such as computers and bustling cities with peaceful natural beauty.

Thomas wrote in Bored Panda that he is a Danish artist who works with recycled materials. Over the last 3 years, he made 25 big recycled sculptures around the world and made 6 hidden giants in his hometown of Copenhagen.

The sculptures are found in some of his favorite places around the city, places where people don’t often go because it’s off the beaten track. The sculptures can only be found by using a treasure map, or a poem engraved into a stone near each sculpture. These give hints on how to find the different giants.

He has made all the sculptures from recycled wood. Mainly from 600 old pallets, an old wooden shed, a fence, and whatever else Thomas was able to scavenge. Every sculpture was made with the help of local volunteers, and each of the sculptures was named after one of the volunteers.

” I hope my art will inspire people to see the big potential in recycling and taking better care of our planet.” Bravo… Great Job for Thomas!
