Art Wall 'The Great Wave off Kanagawa' by Katsushika Hokusai Canvas Art. The Great Wave off Kanagawa Kanagawa-oki nami-ura , lit. “Under a Wave off Kanagawa” , also known as The Great Wave or simply The Wave, is a woodblock print by the Japanese artist Hokusai. An example of ukiyo-e art, it was published sometime between 1830 and 1833 during the Edo Period as the first in Hokusai's series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji Fugaku sanj rokkei , and is his most famous work. This particular woodblock is one of the most recognized works of Japanese art in the world. It depicts an enormous wave threatening boats near the Japanese prefecture of Kanagawa. While sometimes assumed to be a tsunami, the wave is, as the picture's title notes, more likely to be a large okinami literally “wave of the open sea.” As in all the prints in the series, it depicts the area around Mount Fuji under particular conditions, and the mountain itself appears in the background.
Customer reviewsJapanese Storm Trooper
Buyer beware. Received a version with a Storm Trooper riding the waves. Still trying to determine if this is an awesome mistake or a cheap tragedy.
