The other plausible interpretation is that these are hennaed asses ...
small donkeys.... and that the copyist believed he was looking at
hennaed asses (donkeys, yes, I mean DONKEYS) prepared for carrying the
saviour... (who was proxy for the Id sacrifice)

or ...

These are hennaed goats being thrashed as scapegoats .... ohboy has
anyone else seen that amazing orientalist painting of the scapegoat
with rainbows??????

In any case, I do believe we're looking at one person in a non-henna
zone attempting to copy what he sees but does not understand....
