Research suggests that children's drawings are reflective of their culture. Drawings of seven- and eight-year-old children from Japan and the United States revealed that Japanese children draw significantly fewer smiles; created larger figures; and have a higher number of details. The findings are interpreted within the context of cultural differences. (JDM)
