Thomas Dambo uses recycled materials to create art, including towering troll statues. Recently, he hid 10 of these massive sculptures made from scrap wood in secret locations around his home country of Denmark.
Volunteers helped Dambo build the giant trolls by repurposing things like old fences, broken floorboards, and storage pallets. “Trash is the best thing to make sculptures with,” says Dambo. “It’s already broken, so I don’t feel bad about wasting materials or the energy that originally made them.” Once a troll is ready, Dambo installs the sculpture in a secluded spot.
