Social Scaling in Children's Family Drawings: A Comparative Study in Three Cultures.
Andersson, Sven B.
Child Study Journal, v25 n2 p97-121 1995
Children from South Africa and Sweden were asked to draw their "future family." The drawings were compared to investigate whether or not children's human figure drawings reflect sociocultural variations. Cultural variations were found in terms of spatial relationships (social distance, occlusion, and size scaling). However, cultural similarities were found in the way children spontaneously focused on same-sex figures. (AA)
