    About

    A carved soapstone rectangular box, inspired by the iconic print by ‘Great Wave’ by Japanese artist Hokusai.

    The original woodblock print is called Under the Wave, off Kanagawa by Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849).

    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.

    This world-famous print is from the series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji and is among the artist's most famous works.
