A box of 3 ply super soft tissues inspired by the famous Japanese print Fuji Wave by Hokusai.
This luxurious tissue box is created exclusively for the British Museum by new lifestyle brand Atissu.
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 that was made in 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.
