Easter Head I was produced during the spring – Dame Elisabeth Frink’s favourite time of the year, with her favourite colours. It shares its likeness with medieval sculpture, in which Frink held a great interest. The large, staring eyes have also been linked to a late type of mummy mask. This fixed stare symbolises spirituality.
