Maldives donkeys

Oil on panel, 24cm wide x 17cm tall.

This painting shows a pair of mid-blue china donkey ornaments. They are set on a white background. They are brightly lit and cast dark shadows with sharp edges.

The donkey to the left of the frame faces right. This shows four red eyelashes beneath it's right eye. The donkey to the right of the frame faces to the left, but looking out of the picture slightly. We can clearly see it's nostrils. Both donkeys are wearing kind of decoration on the top of their heads between their eyes.
