Make sure you keep the rain at bay with this cheerful, and very appropriate, Fuji Wave umbrella. <br> <br> The unique design of this umbrella was inspired by the famous woodblock printing by the Japanese artist Hokusai, <i>the Great Wave off Kanagawa.</i> It was published in 1832 as the first in Hokusai's series '36 Views of Mount Fuji' and is the artist's most famous work. A beautiful design given a modern twist.

An exclusively designed umbrella featuring a design based on the iconic Fuji Wave print.

The umbrella is supplied with a protective slip in the same 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 beautiful design given a modern twist.
