Elisabeth Frink was a sculptor said in her obituary to have three essential themes in her work: “the nature of Man; the ‘horseness’ of horses; and the divine in human form.” Sir Frederick Gibberd visited Frink’s studio in 1957 when Frink was 27, and commissioned Boar in cement. This was later replaced by the more durable bronze. Two works on paper, including the original sketch for Boar, are on permanent display in the Gibberd Gallery.
