<p>Exclusive to the British Museum- a cotton tea towel inspired by the iconic image of the Fuji Wave. <br /> <br /> The design is based on the Great Wave off Kanagawa and depicts the famous woodblock printing by Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849). It was published in 1832 as the first in Hokusai's series '36 Views of Mount Fuji'.  </p>

Exclusive to the British Museum, a cotton tea towel featuring a design of the Fuji Wave.

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.     

Make a splash in your kitchen with this stunning tea towel.
