See Sir Jacob Epstein's 'Rush of Green'

Found at Edinburgh Gate on the edge of Hyde Park, Rush of Green is the last work by the celebrated sculptor Sir Jacob Epstein, who was working on it until the day he died in August 1959.

The figures and their dog rush towards the green of Hyde Park urged on by Pan, playing his pipes. Since the demolition of the rather bland 1950s block Bowater House, the sculpture now stands in the shadow of the rather expensive One Hyde Park construction.
