Fiddler on the Roof

Painting by Marc Chagall(1887-1985), Le Violiniste Bleu
Chagall's work is so dreamy, isn't it ?
Why the fiddler on the roof ?
"In Chagall's village, Vitebsk, the fiddler made music at crosspoints of life (birth, wedding, death). "
"Life is like a fiddler on the roof trying to scratch out a pleasant simple tune without breaking his neck"
"The balance between tradition and change is that of a fiddler on the roof."
