Snowy, windy farm scene with snow-covered house, barn, water tower. In foreground donkey nibbles at snow while two children are held in panniers on his sides, and dog urinates on the snow. In other scene, woman (sculpture?) perches on stone monument inscribed "Aqua vitae" and holds small-mouthed urns from which pour water into a pond where geese are drinking. (Virginia K. Anderson 03/11/94)
