A sigle fish seen through a 'window', in isolation above the 'Great Wave' and a school of fish outside. A comentary on the situatuion we currently find ourselves in. "When I lived in Japan, my apartment was in Tokyo and I worked in Kanagawa, the same region where ‘The Wave’ is from. Interestingly Gyotaku originated around the same time that Hokusai created this work." -Rachel (The Great Wave off Kanagawa, also known as 'The Great Wave' or simply 'The Wave', is a woodblock print by the Japanese ukiyo-e artist Hokusai. It was published sometime between 1829 and 1833 in the late Edo period as the first print in Hokusai's series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji).
