This one’s from 2 perspectives, Maunganui replacing Fuji and the Astrolabe Reef in front instead of 3 boats (and 30 terrified people on them)! The wave ended up closer to the original than I intended, not sure why, however it’s my tribute to a great work.
My wave goes R to L in the yokogawa tradition, Hokusai broke new ground in 1831 Japan with his wave going L to R in the European tradition, The key to his wave is the low viewing point/horizon, which emphasises our vulnerability vs the power of nature. The subtext is that the wave represents the oncoming/inevitable force of foreign intervention into the closed off empire, with Fuji representing those traditional values.
