Chalk Giant
This huge chalk figure is where a Danish giant once fell asleep, exhausted after killing dozens of men. The local villages took the opportunity to sneak up and cut off his head, drawing a chalk outline around the body to ward off other giants. Although this story is unlikely, the figure is considered a fertility symbol, and anyone who sleeps on the figure is believed to be blessed with many children.
