The original is in the Great Palace Mosaics Museum in Istanbul. It is a part of the floor mosaics in the Bukaleon palace and is a work of the Byzantine period. The scene of a donkey's load being destroyed and fed is a triple pastoral scene that has succumbed to time. On the stage, two people were seen destroying the donkey's load and feeding the animal. In the part that has survived to the present day, one person can be seen feeding the donkey. The animal head, colored with brown tesserae, is depicted facing the viewer.
