We have sightings of this man reported from allover South and Central America: from Mexico
in the North to Chile
in the South, and to Brazil
in the East.
We haven't seen him, yet, in very few countries of the region. Panama
is one such country.
Although the drawing of the man is a monstrosity, it is interesting to note the variations in the shovel and its load.
The shovel may be empty like here, and in e.g. Chile. The man there, however, may sometimes carry a load of earth like in Brazil, and Colombia.
The blade of the shovel is not always attached to the handle in the same way.
Here the blade is in line with the handle, like in Guatemala. Elsewhere it forms an angle with the handle like in Peru, and Costa Rica.
The blade may be shaped like a spoon, like here, or simply flat like in e.g. Ecuador, and Argentina.
Plenty of reason to make a grand road sign tour of Central and South America.
