With the growth of industrial activity, the specialization of activities and the intense migration from the countryside to cities, many activities were professionalized, and this became a common theme in folk art. The development of tourism, with a growing demand for souvenirs, reinforced this interest and encouraged the creation of a market for the figures of doctors, dentists, veterinarians, teachers etc. at work, made by the hundreds of craftsmen and folk artists. Simultaneously, there was an increase in the number of those who thrived outside the law: chicken thieves, lawyers and other unscrupulous white collar criminals.
