<p>A pair of sterling silver drop earrings inspired by the famous image of the Fuji Wave by Japanese artist Hokusai. <br /><br /> These decorative earrings feature enamelled detailing with a Fuji Wave motif. <em>Please note that  pierced earrings cannot be returned, except in case of fault.</em><br /><br /> The original woodblock print is called Under the Wave, off Kanagawa ('The Great Wave') by Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849). <br /><br /> 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.</p>

These decorative earrings feature enamelled detailing with a Fuji Wave design.

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 charming gift inspired by one of the stars of the British Museum's collection.

 

Please note that for hygiene reasons, pierced earrings cannot be refunded.
