The Great Wave off Kanagawa (“Under a 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 is his most famous work, and one of the most recognizable works of Japanese art in the world.
The image depicts an enormous wave threatening three boats off the coast of the town of Kanagawa (the present-day city of Yokohama) while Mount Fuji rises in the background.
The waves represent the twists and turn in life. Blue represents pure and subtle romance. Bird surfing symbolizes calm, firm and courageous.
The main body of the ring is made of S925 silver. The black, sky blue and sea blue tricolor technology are used to make the layered waves, creating a scene that the waves are higher than the mountain.
The silver waves of the Men’s Ring are carved out of hollowing, reflecting the wings of the birds on the Female Ring, showing the reluctant love of the seabirds even when the waves overturn.
