Turkmenistan was one of the constituents of the former Union of Soviet Republics and it is therefore
no surprise that its Children's Crossing Signs belong to the russian group.
Some geographical variation can be found: the children in some countries
are taller, or fatter, or feature a neck, or show better proportions, or …, but the main characteristics are
always there: the children are running and their extremities are not connected to the torso.
Though Konye-Urgench is situated near the border with Uzbekistan, the sample our team
brought back is closer to the design found in Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan
which are situated North and East of the first country.
