The picture depicts a real traffic sign painted in South Africa. It was intended to be an official traffic sign - but the painter, being unfamiliar with them, painted this according to the brief he was given.
What does the road sign represent? What was the brief? What language was this likely to be given in?
There are no cephalopods in the area - it is not close to the coast.
If you want a list of road signs in South Africa...

I know some of you have got this already, but others seem to have missed it.
Do not guess the sign from the picture itself but from the description of the picture
New words (neologisms) for new things are often formed by giving related words new suffixes.
How would you describe the cephalopod’s arms depicted on traffic warning sign?
