Jerusalem Donkey is the result of a series of workshops with Palestinian children. Feuer observed that at various roadblocks in the region it was forbidden for Palestinians to drive motor vehicles. To get around these draconian rules locals used donkeys. The sculpture is an homage to these creatures. Incredibly in 2006 a sinkhole opened up beneath the artist’s storage, swallowing over 60 of the sculptures, the one on display here is a re-creation.
