The artist: Alexandra Jackson

Alexandra Jackson from Virginia USA was one of our four lucky winners to have her design brought to life. Alexandra who is 12 years old has done a brilliant job researching Haiti before designing the maquette. "On either flank of the horse is a lizard and a bird, to represent the many species of both that inhabit Haiti."
