The work cites the 17th century Christian anti-Judaism legend of the “Eternal Jew.” The name of the plant depicted here, the so-called Wandering Jew, is probably derived from its characteristics: it is a survivor that grows almost everywhere, is adaptable, and is able to take root again and again in a wide variety of places. In Israel, this fast-spreading wild plant represents tenacity and resilience. In Germany, it grows only in pots.
