How Do You Feel About Trolls?

I'm sure we all remember the scary trolls from fairy tales, but this year I got to see some man made trolls up close. Thomas Dambo, an artist/designer based in Copenhagen, Denmark created a bevy of trolls at the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, Illinois. These larger than life wooden sculptures were a treat for adults and children alike. There was even a troll camp with huge tools, a shelter, a giant pot, and suspended traps which everyone had fun climbing under.

Yes, my husband talked me into this photo. There was no back on the pot (so no, I didn't have to climb over the side). 

I didn't get to see them being created (I think there were days when one could watch the artist at work), here's a video that shows some of what happened.

For more on the artist, check out the link to his website above.

What fun things have you been up to lately?

Happy adventuring and reading!
