The Great Wave off Kanagawa (Japanese: 神奈川沖浪裏)

In Katsushika Hokusai's (1760-1849) woodblock print "Beneath the Wave in the Sea off Kanagawa," a huge ocean wave rises in various shades of color. Symbolically, the resting body of the sacred Mount Fuji in the background and the effervescent soul in the form of the wave face each other in the work. The fishermen in the boats below the wave seem to hold a wisdom of life: Only through tranquility and communal cohesion can a danger be overcome.
