The Sky above The Great Wave off the Coast of Kanagawa

Hirohiko Araki

(Artist)

I imagined the gods of sports descending on Japan from a sky filled with clouds resembling turbulent waves.
The compositional motif was taken from Katsushika Hokusai’s print, The Great Wave off the Coast of Kanagawa.
Deciding on the color of Mt. Fuji was difficult, but I finally settled on a honey color.
