<p>Exclusive to the British Museum: a silk chiffon scarf inspired by the famous Japanese print 'Fuji Wave' by Hokusai, which is held in the British Museum collection. <br /> <br /> The Fuji Wave is a famous woodblock printing by Hokusai.

Exclusive to the British Museum, a silk chiffon scarf inspired by the famous Japanese print The Great Wave off Kanagawa by Hokusai.

About the Fuji Wave:

Kanagawa-oki Nami Ura or The Great Wave Off Kanagawa by Katsushika Hokusai was published in 1831 as the first in his woodblock print series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji. The remarkable image features fishermen cowering in three skiffs under the wave about to crash down upon them. Mount Fuji can be seen in the distance unperturbed by the impending catastrophe.

It is likely that around 5,000 prints were made from Hokusai’s woodblock, although many of the originals were destroyed during periods of war or natural disasters. An original from a later run is now housed in the British Museum, where it is only displayed for a maximum of six months every five years to prevent light damage to the colours of the image.  

A stunning gift for art history lovers.
