The woman and donkey are being led by the man from the left to the right side of the image. They are facing towards a small brick bridge that is over a creek. There is also a steer next to the donkey on the interior of the piece.In the background is forest with flora and palm trees. In the sky in the upper right corner are the heads of angel like figures with wings amongst clouds. In the lower left corner is a wood fence like structure.
