This primitive or folk art butcher chop beef cuts print by Edward M. Fielding harkens back to the day of the local butcher shops and makes a fine decorative print for the kitchen or local shop.
The piece is a “PNG” file which means it can be purchased with your choice of background color or on products such as t-shirts, coffee mugs, throw pillows and other products as well as fine art prints and canvases. Metal and acrylic prints are also available. Metal is especially attractive in high traffic areas as it can be easily wiped down.
A butcher is a person who may slaughter animals, dress their flesh, sell their meat or do any combination of these three tasks. They may prepare standard cuts of meat and poultry for sale in retail or wholesale food establishments. A butcher may be employed by supermarkets, grocery stores, butcher shops and fish markets, slaughter house, or may be self-employed.
An ancient trade, whose duties may date back to the domestication of livestock, butchers formed guilds in England as far back as 1272. Today, many jurisdictions offer trade certifications for butchers. Some areas expect a three-year apprenticeship followed by the option of becoming a master butcher.
