Men at work in Hungary

Nyíregyháza, IV.2001; pict. A. Anselin

In some rural areas in Hungary it's still possible to discover some decent old signs adapted to the local situation. A good realistic drawing adapted to a rural environment : the heap is a hay-stack!

But the situation is rapidly deteriorating. The most common sign features a worker probably with a wooden leg. We can still discern hands, feet and a more or less convincing heap but the drawing is only marginaly better than the inferior design from Romania.

Our latest find proves that Hungary is on the wrong way alltogether. Match-stick people pop up everywhere. It's the design of Germany where with the uttermost care the last microscopic frivolity was removed.
