Caganers are an unuusal feature of Spain's Christmas cribs. Traditionally the caganer, or crapper, shows a peasant from one of Spain's Catalan-speaking areas in a red 'barretina' cap defecating. But Spain now has a booming trade in celebrity caganers with everyone from football star Leo Messi to US president Barack Obama coming in for the crapper treatment. Here we can see former South African leader Nelson Mandela.
