In many architectural drawings, you’ll see people added to the plans to give an idea of scale, or for a visualisation of the soon-to-be-finished product. Here’s one that I found on a plant room section. This buxom lady is maintaining a generator, but she quite clearly isn’t wearing the correct PPE. No sign of hard hat and visi-vest or gloves, and those shoes really aren’t suitable for use on a building site.

Reminds me of the “nightclub” set of people blocks that went around the office a few years back, which included 2D images of people being drunk and generally misbehaving. A similarly wonderful set of people can be downloaded from, in the form of these table dancers. Despite not having an awful lot of spare time, it appears that the draughtspersons know how to use it wisely.
