‘Donkey’s in the Snow’ is a digital painting created by artist Amy Letts. It depicts the heads of two donkeys, nuzzling each other. The donkey on the left is brown and the one on the right is white with patches of grey. Amy Letts is very skilled at rendering animal fur, so the two donkeys look incredibly soft and cuddly. The background is a flurry of falling snow.

Symbolically associated with Christmas, it is believed that Mary arrived in Bethlehem on a Donkey, as well as carrying Jesus to Jerusalem. In the Legend of the Donkey’s Cross the ‘Little Donkey’ is said to have visited Christ after his crucifixion and the shadow of the cross fell on its back, always to remain there. This marks them as a blessed and holy animal in Christian tradition.
