A team of woodcutters is at work in a forest, moving a tree trunk they have felled. One lifts it at one end with his arms, another tries to raise it with his ax underneath as a lever, and two others have sunk their axes in it as a means of gripping it. Watching them are an overseer and a dog. (Virginia K. Anderson 01/31/94)
