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.
