About this artwork

Frink made four giant heads for the Montague shopping centre in Worthing, West Sussex, England. She remarked: ‘I called the 'Desert Heads' that because I connected them with the feeling I got in the desert in Tunisia. They portray individuals and also they go together collectively. The way I worked on them was in pairs, moving from one to the other.’ The four heads were each cast in editions of six. This cast is numbered 6/6 and carries the ‘MS’ monogram of the Morris Singer bronze foundry.
