The Great Wave silk scarf

This classic scarf features an image of The Great Wave at Kanagawa, a polychrome woodblock print by Katsushika Hokusai (Japanese, 1760–1849).

The preeminence of the original work, said to have inspired both Debussy's sonata "La Mer" and Rilke's poem "Der Berg," can be attributed to its sheer graphic beauty and to the compelling contrast between the force of the wave and the calm of the mountain.

Silk crêpe de chine.

Imported from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
