    "In the 1970s the running man became a dominant theme and this was not entirely a sensual approach to the male nude. These running figures had a symbolic character. Although I have said that my work has never been concerned with symbols, I mean that these sculptures represent a human condition or sensibility. They are not just men running in a landscape, they are fugitives also; either running away from something or running to something. These figures have a political element, because I am preoccupied with the human rights situation in the world at the moment and this preoccupation feeds itself or finds expression in my mankind sculptures." (Elisabeth Frink in Elisabeth Frink Sculpture, Jill Wilder (ed.), Harpvale, Salisbury, 1984, p.37).
