Blue sky breaks through a dense layer of fluffy, white clouds. The desert prospector pushes and drives his donkeys across a long, radiant desert plain. Small, dry vegetation makes its attempts to survive the harsh land.  The scene, though bright, emits themes of struggle, perhaps most evident in each donkey’s posture.
