This print celebrates Tu B'Shvat, the Holiday of the Trees. The tree is surrounded by fields of green representing the resources for the future generations. The text comes from a Talmudic tale.
Once, while the sage, Honi, was walking along a road, he saw an old man planting a carob tree. Honi asked him: "How many years will it take for this tree to give forth its fruit?" The man answered that it would require 70 years. Honi asked: "Are you so healthy a man that you expect to live that length of time and eat its fruit?" The man answered: "I found a fruitful world because my ancestors planted it for me. So, too, will I plant for my children." (Babylonian Talmud, Ta’anit 23a)
The print comes unframed. Made in Israel.
