From 1966, the year Frink moved to France, ‘Frink made a major series of drawings of male heads. The typology she chose to explore was not reassuring. Her men were brutes; they wear helmets, and have enormous chins, tiny ears and low foreheads, so that the helmet – a low, quasi-medieval affair – comes right down over the brow … One aspect of these heads especially worth comment is the fashion in which Frink delineated mouths and teeth. In almost all cases the lips, somewhat thinner than those of the Judas heads, do not entirely cover the serried rows of teeth – a feature which gives these warriors a peculiarly predatory air’ (E. Lucie-Smith, Elisabeth Frink Sculpture Since 1984 and Drawings, London, 1994).
