The friendly giants of the Copenhagen woods

Teddy Friendship

A Danish sculptor named Thomas Dambo made six sculptures of giants out of recycled wood—600 old pallets, a wooden shed, a fence and whatever else he could scavenge and hid them in the woods around his home town of Copenhagen.

The sculptures were made with the help of local volunteers, and each sculpture is named for one of the volunteers.  I found the pictures of the sculptures on the Bored Panda website.

Oscar Under the Bridge

Each sculpture has a plaque giving clues as to where to find others.

Hilltop Trine

Making these must have been a lot of fun.

Sleeping Louise

Here’s a video about how the sculptures came to be made.
