Dame Elisabeth Frink created her series of large male heads, entitled In Memoriam, as a tribute to those who have suffered for their beliefs. This sculpture, the first work of the series, is strong and solemn with its fixed gaze. Frink’s famous Tribute Heads, created in 1974, had also been made as a tribute to those who suffered for their beliefs. But, the bronze heads of the In Memoriam series which Frink produced in 1981 are far rougher in texture than their smooth and serene 1974 brothers, conveying the gritty reality of those victims’ experiences. Unlike Frink’s earlier Tribute series of head sculptures where all the eyes are shut, the eyes of each of the In Memoriam heads are open; they have suffered and survived.
