Hi Jane, now that would make a great fun sign for "No Diving". Carolynx
I know, isn't it cool :))
It's not such a great symbol for a swimming pool, if you know what it really is! This is a determinative for "dead person, fallen man, enemy" and related words. Notice the axe/knife stuck in his head? The water-sign has nothing to do with the meaning- it's part of a verb.
