1. Sekiya’s earthquake model consists of three twisted copper wires that are mounted side by side on a lacquered wooden stand. Each wire shows the path traced out by the motion of an ‘earth-particle’ during the Japanese earthquake of 15th January 1887 (as recorded at Sekiya’s observatory in Tokyo). The horizontal and vertical motion of the ground is magnified 50 times. (via Explore Whipple Collections - A Japanese earthquake model)
