The Great Wave off Kanagawa (Kanagawa-oki nami-ura)
from The Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji by Hokusai
One of most famous of all Hokusai's work and the Japanese woodblock print (ukiyo-e 浮世絵) in general. The print even made to the cover of first edition of Debussy's composition "La Mer", and countless reproductions.
....Well this is one of those countless reproduction attempt using ASCII, this time with COLOUR!
The original location for the basis of this print is somewhere off the coast of current-day Yokohama, in Kanagawa prefecture (Kanagawa-juku (神奈川宿) used to be one of the 53 stations of the Tokaido, the old highway that is nowadays replaced by the eponymous Tokaido Line (東海道本線) and Tokaido Route (National Highway (国道) 1)
The series "The Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji" was created between 1826-1833, originally conceived for 36 prints, ten more were added after the original publication. It depicts the famous Mount Fuji viewed from a variety of locations and meteorological conditions. Another famous ukiyo-e artist Hiroshige (広重) also made 36 prints on the same subject thirty years later (冨士三十六景, also "Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji").
