The woodcutter is the quintessential kiwi bloke in his 'swanny' and favourite woolly hat, perched on one of those old blue enamelled tin cups many of us had (and still have!) for camping trips or days outdoors.
To me this fantail is the Uncle, the Dad, the guy next door, who every year spends a few days chopping, sorting and stacking firewood ready for the winter. Big burly blokes with little skinny legs who wield axes and tomahawks like the men of a bygone era.
At the end of a hard days work doing firewood its time for a wee kip in the late afternoon sun…or snoring in the lounge chair halfway through the TV news!
