|Eastern Tanzania, VIII.2002; pict. R. Clauws|
|This find is a clear case where
a course in spade handling could work wonders.
One can't shovel a heap away when both hands rest together at the far end of the pole.
Starting to dig at the base of the heap surely
isn't the most efficient way. The heap won't turn over in the abyss but spread.
The poor guy probably is misguided by the artwork at Basel's train station.
|Some other points worth noticing:|
|The shape of the panel is circular. No other work-sign in the collection is.
The detail in the drawing is remarkable. Look at the foot-sole, the arms, the spade. Pitty the head though.
|The shape of the heap is peculiar. It's unlikely that this is a state of equilibrium for an earthen heap. Is it a hay-stack perhaps? (Compare this with a find from Hungary.)|
