Children's crossing in Lebanon

Although the French had during quite some time the opportunity to press for their design, they didn't succeed. They only got the caption. The drawing, however, is one hunderd percent Mediterranean, in accordance with the men at work.

Although this design is wide-spread, it's still possible to find other versions. The first picture on the row below is probably the precursor of the modern panel. The drawing is more realistic (smooth lines, neck present) but not much (no clothes, no hands).

The third find is a copy of the children's crossing of Germany but with slightly less detail. The same design was also found in Jordan.
Could that be a sign of more German influence in that region ? We'll know for sure with the first report from Israel.
