Thomas Dambo seems to have never lost his inner child. Because his method of placing wooden sculptures is based on the “hide and seek” game. In order to find the wooden troll sculptures, you have to seek them out in the forest. This is the main element of his project. In this way, the artist aims to create a bond between nature and seekers. While the seekers try to find the sculptures, they may start appreciating nature, animals, and plants.
