Choosing your fine Artwork

Below is a guide for selecting the perfect fine art for your home. It doesn’t have to be bewildering or complicated or considered an extravagance. Your photographs deserve to be displayed proudly in your home! In an age where digital is king, Lion & Cub believes that there is power, and beauty in real photos, hung on the Wall for everyone to see.

Children love seeing themselves on the Wall – it reinforces how loved they are and builds self-esteem. And how many shots of your baby do you have with you in them? Our fine art products are divided into two simple categories – something more prominent for the Wall Or something smaller for your mantlepiece, desk or coffee table.

Lion & Cub proudly offers options for displaying the Hero Pieces or 3 Framed Storyboards to 4 Collections to group your portraits as individual pieces or in a gallery style cluster.

We offer an incredible range of artwork options that are designed to suit any home and budget. From leatherette or linen-bound albums; to professionally framed and ready-to-hang art collections (canvas, wood and steel mounted acrylic prints for the walls) to handmade timber boxes that allow you to change the hero image as often as you like.

Our portfolio prints start at $175. Wall art starts at $395. Collections range from $995 to$1995, which can be purchased for as little as $15 per week with our Payright and layby options. Families tend to invest in between $1000 to $3000 to achieve beautifully designed artwork for their walls.

All of your artwork comes finished and ready to display or hang, with a range of products to suit everyone’s style and budget.

Fine Art for the wall


Our Cape range is for single image wall art pieces that are striking,  works that command attention in a room. We recommend this option for the hero image, the one that makes you gasp or shriek with delight!

Printed on cotton rag paper to best show detail, clarity and colour, your image can be floating within a deep-set wooden frame, or traditionally mounted. Frames come in grey ash, pale oak, dark timber or black or white and come in a range of sizes and shapes to delight every home.

Our Cape Wall Art prices range from $795 to $1495

Our Acacia range intentionally uses smaller frames to beckon the viewer to step closer, and can be a more iintimate take, perfect for a mantelpiece, desk or hallway, surrounded by other ornaments you love.

Smaller frames are available as single pieces in square, rectangular or circular formats and can be hand torn around the edges for a specialist effect.

Our Acacia Fine Art prices range from $395 to $625
