‘Boar’ was commissioned as a concrete sculpture in 1957 for Slacksbury Hatch. On completion, Harlow Art Trust decided to site the work at Bush Fair shopping precinct. The Trust usually nominated a member to oversee the commissioning process. In this instance it was Sir Frederick Gibberd, as he had had a relationship with Elisabeth Frink, having been commissioned to make the altar crucifix for Gibberd’s Liverpool Cathedral. A preliminary drawing of the altar crucifix can be seen at the Gibberd Gallery.
Unfortunately, the original version suffered from vandalism and weathering and, in 1970, was recast in bronze. It was sited at the Water Gardens in Harlow Town Centre in 1989.
