The Fuji wave T-shirt, available in various sizes. The motif on this cotton t-shirt takes inspiration from the famous woodblock print by Hokusai known as the Fuji Wave, or Great Wave.
The original print is called Under the Wave, off Kanagawa [‘The Great Wave’] by Katsushika Hokusai (1760- 1849). This world-famous print is from the series ‘Thirty- six Views of Mount Fuji’. It is a colour woodblock from Japan in around 1831.
The remarkable image features fishermen cowering in three skiffs, almost praying in supplication to the ‘Great Wave’ about to crash down on them. Only Mount Fuji, low in the hollow of the wave, as if seen through a telescope, stands unperturbed by the impending catastrophe.
