Mention the words Henry Moore to anyone and they'll almost certainly conjure images of organic mass, dense volume and ambiguous form. For me, however, the forms quickly morph into Jessie, a handsome Staffordshire bull terrier whose owners would walk him to Greenwich Park, around a famous piece by the artist, Standing Figure: Knife Edge, and back. Eventually, over the years, the very words "Henry Moore" would be synonymous with "walkies". Sadly, Jessie is no longer with us and, for Greenwich Park at least, neither is the sculpture, which was removed by the Henry Moore Foundation (HMF) for fears of graffiti. But while negotiations between the Friends of Greenwich Park and the HMF to decide its future continue, the sculpture can temporarily be seen as part of a major exhibition of the artist's work, within The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

It's been called the "jewel in India's crown", "the Switzerland of Asia", and even, according to the tourism department, "paradise on earth".
