Magician says 'tool thieves' stole bags of circus props

Melanie Earley Reporter from East & Bays Courier

Kia ora neighbours, a foam baguette, one-of-a-kind rings and juggling balls are just a few of the items an Auckland magician has lost after thieves smashed their way into his van.
“Le Cirque de JP,” a French magician and circus performer who has called New Zealand home since 2009, said two suitcases full of circus props were stolen from outside his home in Kohimarama, while he slept earlier this week. Now he's offering a reward to anyone who can help him find his items.

Artist sculpts Sir John Logan Campbell : Cornwall Park, Auckland

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Auckland artist Shona Lyon has commemorated Sir John Logan Campbell by creating this double life-sized bust.

It took Lyon four months to bring to life the detailed bronze sculpture which towers three metres high in Cornwall Park, Auckland.

Turning an old one dimensional photograph into the 360 degree sculpture proved the biggest challenge for Lyon.

The bust pays tribute to Campbell, who gifted 425 acres of One Tree Hill land to the people of New Zealand in 1901, renaming it Cornwall Park.

Special memories of growing up next to the park inspired Lyon's family to donate the sculpture.
