The Great Wave off Kanagawa is one of the most iconic works of art of its time. The woodblock print was created by the Japanese artist, Hokusai, during the Edo period around 1831. Mount Fuji can be seen in the background depicted very small in comparison to emphasize the magnitude of the spiraling and foaming tidal wave. This work of art is thought to have inspired many other artists' works throughout history and remains one of the most common art recreations to this day.

Quilling Cards' Artist Series artfully transforms paint strokes into paper strips using the ancient art of quilling. Each card takes several hours to make and reimagines a famous work of art into a magnificent greeting card that can either be sent and shared with loved ones or kept and framed as the work of art it is.

About the Artist

Katsushika Hokusai

Katsushika Hokusai, known simply as Hokusai (1760—1849) was a Japanese master artist and printmaker of the ukiyo-e (“pictures of the floating world”) school. His early works represent the full spectrum of ukiyo-e art, including single-sheet prints of landscapes and actors, hand paintings, and surimono (“printed things”), such as greetings and announcements. His famous print series “Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji,” published between 1826 and 1833, marked the summit in the history of the Japanese landscape print.
