The caganers or 'crappers' are a popular nativity scene decoration in Catalonia, where a defecating figure perched behind Mary and Joseph is said to symbolize fertilization, as well as bringing luck and prosperity for the year ahead.
Visit any Catalan home at Christmas and you will find what appears to be an interloper hiding among the traditional figures around the crib in the nativity scene.
Modern crappers represent public figures of the moment, from politicians to sporting heroes.
Cartoon characters, literary figures, film icons can all be found on the shelves of stalls selling caganers.

No-one is above the cheeky satire that sees celebrities bare their bottoms and perform a call of nature from Queen Elizabeth II to Pope Francis.
Not surprisingly, the Donald Trump figure has been a best-seller for the last few years and is set to top the crapping charts again in 2020.
Here he is with President elect Joe Biden, who is a frontrunner in the sales for 2020.
