This print "The Great Wave of Kanawaga" is one of the best-known designs in Hokusai’s Fuji series and is an iconic emblem of Japanese art.

The print depicts three boats tossed by the wind and gigantic, towering waves. The boats somehow stay afloat, their crew crouching in the scuppers. Snow falls against the gray sky and over the blue waves. Snow-covered Mount Fuji rises serenely in the distance, far from the turmoil of the breaking waves.
