The following description was written by the researcher Alec Mishory.
"A man like me shall not run away!" (Lo Yivrach Ish Kamoni!), the opening verse in Ch. N. Bialik's poem Seer, Run Away! Was taken by Budko and used as a motto for a large-scale woodcut. The two protagonists of the print are united by a staff-cane that both hold with their hands. The young man holds it forcefully; his right hand grasps it tightly and thus the staff signifies a weapon. The entire weight of the old man's hunched body is leaning on his left hand with which he grasps the staff and uses it as a support. The staff is a common attribute of a wanderer, perhaps indirectly linking it to identify the old man with the allegorical figure of the 'The Wandering Jew'. Budko's variation on this visual theme, expresses his belief of the end of Jewish Exile and indirectly as the end of the eternal process of Jewish wandering next to the Zionist promises of bringing them to an end. By juxtaposing the frail image of an old man with the image of a firm young one, Budko created a visual personification of the 'New Jew', a proud man, assertive and powerful, while not turning his back to Jewish tradition of the past and continues it by marching forward.
