Description

Front: White card with scalloped borders. Red Hebrew text in upper right corner. Illustration of a farmer with horse and cart with a brown field on the right, and a green field with mountains and the setting sun on the left. Glitter on the sun and through the brown field.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: More than merely celebrating agriculture, this drawing of a Zionist tilling the soil is also a potent metaphor for Israeli pride in its independence, self-sufficiency, and self-gernative power in creating a new nation with a new history for Jewish people after WWII.
