The signs show estimated flood depth generated by Nankai Trough giant earthquake. Those signs are created as the disaster prevention measures of Nishi Ward, Osaka. The levels of flood depth are depicted respectively in the body height of seven animals, making it easy even for children to understand the depth in an intuitive manner. Those are intended to raise awareness of tsunami for the residents by displaying the depth on the walls of public facilities such as schools. Various creators contributed to the process of design by carrying out discussions and workshops at elementary schools.
