The Met Hokusai Great Wave Silk Scarf
This versatile oblong scarf in lightweight silk features details from The Great Wave at Kanagawa, the famous polychrome woodblock print by Katsushika Hokusai (Japanese, 1760–1849). The scarf's graceful elegance will lend timeless beauty to any look.
The preeminence of Hokusai's original work (ca. 1830–32), 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 distant mountain.
