Discerning Donkey

By Alan Lewis

Animal: Donkey, Material: Cottonwood Root
This offering is sold.
Alan Lewis' wonderfully hand-carved cottonwood root donkey (or mule) has colorful turquoise eyes and distinctive white patches, painted with acrylic paints and burnished for lovely detail. Perceptive and sociable, donkeys are considered all-terrain animals as they're adaptable to many different environments, as compared to a Horse. Donkeys are not stubborn but rather it's their intelligence that tells them to stay put, when danger is sensed. They have excellent memories and are long-lived equines to be admired and cherished. About 5" tall, 1 1/2" wide and 4 1/4" long. Signed by the artist.
