Our first two finds can be seen in several countries budded from the former Soviet block. We find them with only slight varia­tions in the face of the cliff and in size and position of the stones in countries like e.g. Armenia, Georgia, Kazachstan and more.

The signs in the bottom row are limited to Uzbekistan's roads only and show seven boulders; that is one more than on the former. Notice that most signs are rather docile with boulders of a regular shape and a straight, or softly undulating, cliff. The last sign in the row, however, breaks the habit and is probably drawn by some­one under influence of some psychoactive product: the cliff is wildly undulating.
