Children's crossing signs on Fiji

The drawing for the children's crossing in Fiji is clearly influenced by the UK-design. The clothing is similar and the hands in both cases are knobs. Could that be how they procreate? In which case what we call the boy would be in fact a new female not ready yet to be released in the environment.

Compared with the UK, some small improvements were applied. The head of the girl is now a real head and she refrains from crushing the boy's foot. Take a closer look to her armpit. A yellow hairline is just noticeable and gives some depth to the scene. Most interesting and probably unique.

Yes, the inevitable has happened. Globalisation strikes again.

The local produce is replaced by a new breed which is a hybridisation of the UK-drawing on a canvas of the shape used in the new world.
