The Six Forgotten Giants, is the latest project of Danish artist Thomas Dambo. Each one of the friendly looking characters has been carefully constructed from hundreds of pieces of recycled wood.
Local volunteers helped build the sculptures using 600 pallets, a shed, bits of old fencing and various other bits of scrapwood. The giants were named after the builders there’s ‘Little Tilde’, ‘Teddy Friendly’, ‘Thomas on the Mountain’, ‘Oscar under the Bridge’, Hill top Trine’ and ‘Sleeping Louis’.
Dambo wanted to bring art out of the museum and into nature for everyone to experience and enjoy. Visitors use a treasure map to search for the enormous creatures and kids have a great time climbing on them, discovering the hidden secrets inside and reading poems that describe their different personalities.
