Trolls: Guardians of the Seeds.

Guardians of the Seeds Trolls

A group of five mythical trolls has taken residence in the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. Created by artist Thomas Dambo in a two-year, $500,000 collaboration, these friendly giants are nestled along hidden paths, inviting visitors on a hunt to catch a glimpse. The sculptures, with Danish names related to the forest, expand Dambo's collection of 80 trolls found worldwide.
