From Trash To Trolls

Not the Internet type of troll. Copenhagen artist Thomas Dambo is known for creating giant outdoor trolls from salvaged or trashed wood. The Danish sculptor and self-proclaimed “recycled art activist” creates massive troll sculptures, each four to seven feet tall with comical yet creepy expressions. His trolls will soon be displayed in Dambo’s latest installation, “The Great Troll Folk Fest.” National Geographic has more details: 

Over the next few months, with help from volunteers and staff (and funding via private donations), he’ll assemble and install 10 figures in all. The colossal 15- to 21-foot-tall giants will be hidden in lesser-known greenspaces around Denmark, including tiny islands near Copenhagen and out-of-the-way parks. He’ll release clues about their locations on social media. “It’s a kind of treasure hunt, a gift for families in Denmark, who may feel sad that they can’t go on vacation this summer,” says Dambo. “The trolls help remind us that there are these beautiful places practically in our backyards.”
