Forgotten Giants of Copenhagen, Denmark
Have you ever looking for treasure hunting? Grandma Sita met two incredibly cute giants by following the treasure hunt in Copenhagen. The giants are actually made from scrap wood by the artist Thomas Dambo, who wanted to bring the story of the forgotten giants to little people 😉
This giants tells a story of seven friends who used to live in forest and led a simple life, but they saw how the little people destroying the future in the name of civilization. That’s why they decided the to help the mankind to realise that there are more things than civilisation and all beings are one in the soul. So when the giants built the tower, the little people came to visit them, with a hope to see beyond forest and nature, that there will be a future for all. There are six Forgotten Giants sculptures in the western municipalities of Copenhagen.

- Hill Top Trine // Grandma Sita was resting on top of a little hill in Hvidovre, Copenhagen. She crawled into the palms of her hands and got a beautiful viewpoint overlooking Avedøresletten. Hill Top Trine is named after one of the volunteers who worked on one of the other hidden giants.
- Sleeping Louis // Louis was taking a nap on a hill, covered in trees and nature, in a secret place in Rødovre outside of Copenhagen. Grandma Sita crawled into his gaping mouth, and played inside him!
There are four more giants, named Teddy Friendly, Oscar Under the Bridge, Little Tilde and Thomas on the Mountain. Grandma Sita and her grandchild Nena are planning to visit them soon! Stay tuned 🙂
