New Zealand as a lion cub

New Zealand as a lion cub

The idea of New Zealand as a better Britain is captured in this 1905 cartoon published in the British magazine Punch, showing the country as an upstart lion cub defeating its somewhat startled British parent. Success at rugby continues to be an important part of New Zealand’s culture, and a measure of the country’s character and confidence.
