Here are the carved backs of the chairs. I felt they deserved a post of their own.
Notice the hand-hewn rough marks left by the tools on the backs of the chairs then compare those rough surfaces to the care that was taken to depict the animals with vitality and humor. Perhaps these chairs were made by the farmer himself since they certainly show a sense on intimacy with what makes a weasel a weasel and a squirrel a squirrel.
The next up -- Some repairs that were made a very long time ago.
