Pan & Bear drinking fountain

In Morningside Park at 114th street, there's a bronze statue of Pan hiding from a bear with a drinking fountain oddly annexed to the right (not shown). The work is sculpted by Edgar Walter and is named The Alfred Lincoln Seligman Fountain in memory of Mr. Seligman, a banker, who died in a head-on car crash. None of this is written on the bronze, however.
