Buried Troll

Located at Eno River Farm, the sculpture is of a large troll head, hand, leg, and foot. Visitors can climb up the leg and into the head.

[Martha Burnett, 04/15/2024]

This is a tribute to two other attractions: the current-seemingly-everywhere Thomas Dambo giant wooden trolls, and an earlier sculpture of a half-buried-in-the-ground giant titled "The Awakening."
