Jon Lomberg pays homage to the great Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) who created a famous woodcut of a giant wave with Mt. Fuji seen on the horizon. Lomberg reinterprets this image in an astronomical context, showing the disk of the galaxy as a cresting wave spraying out young stars. The galactic center can be seen in the background, in the position Mt. Fuji occupies in the woodcut.
