Glued wooden sheets


Glued wooden sheets

If the dimensions of the envisaged sculpture exceeded the dimensions of the available wooden block, then some pieces of wood were glued together. There are some examples for extending a sculpture with different types of wood. The fixing points of the wooden blocks were subsequently covered by painting.
