"Behind the Great Wave at Kanagawa", by Hokusai

Hokusai's Behind the Great Wave at Kanagawa from his seminal work 36 Views of Mount Fuji is one of the most iconic representations of the Japanese style of art known as ukiyo-e. The scene is of a great wave (often mistaken for a tsunami) about to devour the men and boats, with the distant Mount Fuji minimized by the size of the wave.
