Hokusai Kuro Fuji Cotton Furoshiki Wrapping Cloth 19in
This wapping cloth features “Kuro(Black)Fuji", said to be a twin of "Aka(Red)Fuji" by Katsushika Hokusai.
Different from the majestic and generous Fuji in "Aka Fuji," "Kuro Fuji" depicts a wild and stormy Mt Fuji with the summer cumulonimbus clouds and lightning, giving the impression of nature's strength and dynamism.
Hokusai draws many pictures with Mt. Fuji as a motif. Mt. Fuji, a mountain loved by Japanese people, changes its appearance surprisingly depending on the season and weather, but Hokusai's deep observation and skillful expressiveness give each painting a depth and wonderful impression.
It is a perfect gift for people who love Japanese art and culture or for yourself as a beautiful multi-use cloth.
