The Great Wave off Kanagawa is the most famous woodblock print by the Japanese artist, Hokusai. It is the first print in his series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji, which was published circa 1830. Hokusai depicts a dynamic wave which forms a circle framing Mt. Fuji in the distance. The beautiful Mt. Fuji is considered a sacred symbol of Japanese national identity. This collection comes at a perfect time as these styles celebrate the enduring beauty and importance of Hokusai’s work as well as shine a spotlight on the need to protect our environment. Our collection features a printed detail of The Great Wave with lapis lazuli and cultured pearl accents. Made in the USA.
