Hokusai Wave Chirimen Yuzen Furoshiki Wrapping Cloth 27in
This Furoshiki is depicting one of the most famous works of Japanese art, "The Great Wave" by Katsushika Hokusai.
The contrast between stillness and movement, change and universality, and large and small is characteristic of this work, which has influenced many different artists.
Throughout his life, Hokusai painted waves as the main subject of his paintings along with Mount Fuji. Hokusai's expression of the ever-changing movement of water captures the hearts of those who see it, even in modern times.
This Furoshiki is made by a Japanese traditional weaving technique called "Chirimen", which gives it a unique texture with an uneven surface.
It is perfect for wrapping precious gifts or as a bag for daily use.
