“The city took him gently apart, and once the snow melts, I will be back to rebuild him in a new location,” he wrote.

All of the giants are produced from recycled wood, material that was gathered by Dambo and his team from 600 pallets, a shed, an old fence, and various other sources. Using local volunteers to build the works, Dambo then names each sculpture after one of the builders, such as Teddy Friendly . You can see more images of the oversized sculptures on Dambo’s website.

The sculpture has been renamed as well, to Simon and Anine. Once again, the sculpture was erected using recycled materials donated by the hardware store. Anine and a few friends helped Dambo and his team with the rebuild.
