Rush of Green

 

Here's Franks photo:

Sir Jacob Epstein, Pan

"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."

He was a slip turning icon in Britain Elizaneth, and everywhere else I would imagine.

How wonderful and fluid this shot is. You'd swear it was happening for real.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Mary! A compliment to the sculptor I think!
I like both versions of this statue Elizabeth, they make a good silhouette. My grumpy side says I might have cloned out the lamppost.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Brian! Guess what... Frank said the exact same thing... smile
