Donkey I


I've grown very fond of the donkey while creating these creatures. They work very well with nativities, or as stand-alone animlas. The donkey features short gray and white fur and long rounded ears that stand straight up.

All my creatures are handcrafted in my Asheville, NC studio using porcelain, castable stone and imported woven fur from Steiff-Schulte in Germany.

Size: 7 1/2" Tall


Breed Description
The donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family. The wild ancestor of the donkey is the African wild ass, E. africanus. The donkey has been used as a working animal for at least 5000 years. There are more than 40 million donkeys in the world, mostly in underdeveloped countries, where they are used principally as draught or pack animals. Working donkeys are often associated with those living at or below subsistence levels. Small numbers of donkeys are kept for breeding or as pets in developed countries. --info via Wikipedia
