A design widespread in Russia and neighboring countries, e.g. Lituania, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan.

He has very familiar looks, but in reality he is rarely seen. The one, and only, similar worker is reported from Cyprus.

This guy is a member of the U.K.-Group of Workers (see Great Britain). There are two main subgroups:
● Great Britain: wearing wellingtons and pushing his spade so deep into the heap that the blade disap­pears.
● South-Africa: no wellingtons and the blade is visible.

The drawing at hand has features of both: no wellingtons and no blade.

Notice the detail: both hands are shown; the feet also; the man is doing hard work. The heap has a slightly undulating sur­fa­ce.

This was our first find in Azerbaijan and we never saw the man again, alas. Here, too, the worker's own identity is quickly lost. It's a worldwide problem.
