    Grayburn agreed to sit for sculptor Jon Edgar as part of the preparations for The Human Clay exhibition in 2011. During the sitting Edgar, a sculptor of the Frink School learnt that whilst working for London County Council, Grayburn had commissioned the Blind Beggar and his Dog sculpture for Bethnal Green - one of Elisabeth Frink’s earliest commissions.
