Born in South Africa, sculptor Bruce Little is as much conservationist as artist. His art reflects 20 years spent in the woodlands and captures a deep meaning of his animal subjects — their surroundings, behavior and spirit.
His strong conservation ethos inspires his artwork’s legacy to make both significant change and awareness for the plight of our planet and the animals that call it home. He says, “If my art can inspire a greater empathy and appreciation for these creatures, I will have contributed something valuable to our relationship with nature.”
Created in bronze, the Indianapolis Prize Award represents endangered species across our globe, from the land, sea and sky.

The gravity-defying sculptural works of Beijing-based artist Zheng Lu focus on the universal images found in nature and the elements. His creativity, thoughtfulness as a global citizen, and care toward animal protections made him the perfect creator of the new Jane Alexander Global Wildlife Ambassador Award.
The stainless-steel artwork follows his “Water in Dripping” series, emphasizing the significance of water as an important resource for all living organisms. The movement of water is a momentary capture of historical space and time, just like the establishment of the award to honor the field of animal protection.
The shape of the award signifies water, while evolving like the DNA helix curve, two core elements of life.
