Être fier de son métier, encore quelque chose qui a tendance à s'oublier de nos jours , surtout ici en Europe on nous propose plutôt la fierté d'être chômeur .

Yes, so very true! And, I'm almost certain this man was at one time a slave and did the same work while in bondage. But here he proudly stands as a free man with tools of his trade which would help feed and clothe him and his family.
