“The sculptures are found in some of my favorite places around the city [Copenhagen], places where people don’t go to often, because it’s off the beaten track. The sculptures can only be found by using a treasure map, or a poem engraved into a stone near each sculpture. These give hints on how to find the different giants.” — Thomas Danbo
