'The Dying King with the Judas, is one of the key pieces in my 1960s work. He's dying on the battlefield. The idea came from seeing a film which showed Richard III being killed in battle, stabbed to death as he puts his arm up to fend his attackers off. And I'd been going round churches two or three days earlier, looking at the figures on medieval tombs, which I found quite wonderful. So it's also a crusader figure on a tomb' (see Elisabeth Frink, Frink A Portrait, London, 1994, p. 119).
