Hokusai is considered one of the greatest Japanese artists of all time, and we’ve decided it would be wrong not to include his work in a poster. Hokusai’s Great Wave picture is certainly the one image of Japan that almost everybody around the world knows – it’s one of the most copied images of all time! Most people think this image is of a tsunami, but it is probably just a freak giant wave.
“36 Views of Mount Fuji” is the series of woodblock prints that captures this and many other images. You can see Mt Fuji sitting unmoved in the background as the fishermen in their boats battle the seas in the Bay of Edo (now Tokyo).
Our reproduction has kept a hint of the print’s vintage origins but will look superb in any Japan fan’s home! This is Japanese art and woodblock print making at its best.
