Agriculture Culture

Passing through Taihape

Kiri: Grotesque.

Fred: I don’t know. I
t’s a bit of local culture.

Kiri: More local than culture. I mean, a giant gumboot? And in corrugated iron?

Fred: It’s a symbol of the “Throwing the Gumboot” event. Every March.
Gumboots are part of farming clothing.
Agriculture is culture.
Therefore a gumboot IS a cultural artifact.
