Friedrich Nagler: Wood carvings
Wood was probably Friedrich's favourite medium and he carved to the sound of classical music, on Radio 3.

Friedrich Nagler: Woodcarvings using re-purposed wood
Many of the later carvings were created using wooden items bought cheaply from junk shops and boot fairs. These could have been crude souvenirs or primitive art work, but it was the wood that Friedrich wanted. He also repurposed other items, such as wooden trays (right) and wooden clogs. A feature of many of these carvings was that they could be viewed from both sides to reveal multiple faces.
