We found Shona Lyon because of her generosity.  She is donating a portion of her sales to the Orangutan Foundation International, For the Love of Wildlife, SPCA NZ and World Vision. We approached her with a special mission - to look inside and write a letter of advice to her 22 year old self. This week we got a request from someone helping school leavers wanting to know if The Big Idea would share some of the articles. How brilliant to know that our writers are paying it forward and inspiring young people to back themselves in their creative futures.  Click here to read the full article...

Media Release - June 2018 |  read media release here.


One of New Zealand’s top sculptors will be entwining locally created art with global conservation when her latest exhibition is staged in Auckland this month. Mythos, Shona Lyon’s new collection of approximately 25 works in bronze, has distinctive themes of physicality and the human-animal relationship, and the sculptor is deliberately connecting her work with related causes by donating part of the proceeds from sales of her animal statues. For each of her orangutan sculptures, Ms Lyon will donate $250 to Orangutan Foundation International; every sale of a lion sculpture will prompt a $1,000 donation to For the Love of Wildlife, which funds animal protection projects in Australia, New Zealand, and Africa; and a donation of $300 will be made to the SPCA for every set of cat sculptures sold. And for every life-size African child bronze sculpture sold, Shona will sponsor a child for two years. Click here to read the full media release...
