Chipping Away: Metaphor for life?

 As a census enumerator in the 1981 Census we received in my area this response to Q12 – Occupation:
  The reply was, “I am a sculptor of stone lions.” To the next question:  Please describe the nature of the work done, the responder wrote:

   “I chip away all the bits of stone that are not lion.”
