Originally created as a Japanese Ukiyo-e woodblock printing, “the Great Wave of Kanagawa” is a study of contrasts between thundering waves and the small but mighty Mt. Fuji. Artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) often used the mystical mountain as a centerpiece in his art. In a novel interpretation of a traditional theme, Mt. Fuji’s significance and power is hardly minimized by its diminished size.
