Still, Life - Moyshe Nadir

“In life,” a jug has a handle.

So that you can hold it when you go draw water.

But in the image, on the painted jug, you don’t need a handle.

For you don’t draw water with a painted jug.

from fun mir tsu dir, nayste verk IV, (New York: Freiheit Publishing co., 1932), 143
