The Great Wave off Kanagawa, also known as The Great Wave or simply The Wave, is a woodblock print by the Japanese ukiyo-e artist Katsushika Hokusai. It was published sometime between 1829 and 1833 in the late Edo period as 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. More at Wikipedia. It's always been one of our favorite images and was the first thing we ever burned with our laser printer. We hope you'll enjoy seeing this iconic image as a digital pyrograph.
