The Great Wave Off Kanagawa

by Katsushika Housai (1883)

The Great Wave or simply The Wave, is a woodblock print by the Japanese artist Hokusai. It was the first print in Hokusai’s series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji. It is Hokusai’s most famous work, and one of the most recognizable works of Japanese art in the world.

The image depicts an enormous wave threatening boats off the coast of the town of Kanagawa. As in all the prints in the series, it depicts the area around Mount Fuji under particular conditions, and the mountain itself appears in the background.

1 Peter 1:24-25

24 For: “All flesh is like grass,
and all its glory like the flower of the field;
the grass withers,
and the flower wilts;
25 but the word of the Lord remains forever.”
