As a show of respect, gratitude and well-wishing (probably some obligation, too!), each kouhai (後輩), or junior, works together to create these works, using only sand and negative space and including inspirational messages, to mark the graduations of their senpai (先輩), or senior.

Via Twitter user Ayhbbnm15, you can see the students making Dragon Ball sand art.

Then, when the kouhai become the senpai, they get similar art to celebrate their graduations.
