חד גידא

This illustrated version of the popular Passover song "Had gadya" was the wonderfully playful offspring of the avantgarde artist El Lissitzky (1890-1941). It dates to a little-known period early in his career when he immersed himself in the Jewish cultural renaissance that flourished in Russia between 1912 and 1920.
