Easter Head I 
Bronze with brown patina, 49.5 x 51 x 33.5 cms
On Loan from the artist
For nearly thirty years, Elisabeth Frink made sculptures of monumental heads, capturing both the vulnerability and strength of human nature, the compassion and the cruelty. This work is entitled 'Easter Head' since it was made at Easter time and the artist felt that it embodied a certain spiritual quality. She wrote: "What I have tried to make clear in my sculpture is the way in which feelings, expression, even force and energy, should be below the surface. The outer skin may define more or less conventional features, but a second look should indicate the complex strains of nerve endings and the anticipatory reflexes of something that is about to happen."
This work was exhibited at Agnew's Gallery, London in November 2004 as part of the 'Paintings from New Hall' exhibition.
