About this artwork

This is the last of the four Desert Quartet heads. They were made in wet plaster, which Frink carved once set. She continually added plaster and then carved it away with a chisel to give the rough surface appearance. Some of the bronzes have the conventional brown patina; others, like ours, have a white patina. 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.
