Japanese design items with motif of Hokusai works

About the artist: Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) was a Japanese artist, painter, draughtsman and engraver. 

The Great Wave off Kanagawa is the first in a series of prints entitled “Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji”, published between 1831 and 1833. This series of prints is characterised by the significant use of Prussian blue, a new colour fashionable in the 1830s, and by the occasional use of Western techniques for representing perspective, which was previously unknown in traditional Middle Eastern art: figures or objects were depicted according to their importance (e.g. spiritual value), and not according to their actual size, proximity or distance.

Magnetukas dekoruotas garsaus japonų menininko Hokusai sukurtu ukiyo – e piešiniu, vaizduojančiu Didžiąją Kanagavos bangą (神奈川沖浪裏 Kanagawa-Oki Nami-Ura). Tai vienas žymiausių šio autoriaus darbų, dažnai pateikiamas kaip japoniško meno reprezentacija. „Didžioji banga“ priklauso paveikslų ciklui „36 Fudžijamos kalno vaizdai (富 嶽 三 十 六 景 Fugaku Sanjūrokkei), kuriame kalnas Fudžis vaizduojamas iš skirtingų vietovių perspektyvos, kintančiu oru ir skirtingais metų laikais. Kaip ir kitose, šioje graviūroje didžiulės bangos fone taip pat matyti kalnas Fudžis.
