Grinling Gibbons' carvings at Hampton Court Palace

Grinling Gibbons' wood carvings at Hampton Court Palace are some of the finest works by the grand master of the art form.

Here, State Apartment Warder Konrad Jordaan explains why they are some of his favourite things and tells the fascinating stories from Gibbons' life and the monarchs who commissioned him. You can see longer versions of these 'A few of my favourite things' talks live at the palace throughout the year -- visit www.hrp.org.uk for details. A film by Tim Powell at Historic Royal Palaces.
