Tribute to Hokusaļ - The big wave of Kanagawa mosaic
Welcome to my Wave mosaic page
About this creation
This painting from Hokusaļ has always been one of my favorite. It was a real challenge to make it with Lego bricks. I had to make it bigger compared to the real size to obtain a good mosaic effect.

Carasteristics :
~6000 pieces
79cm x 55cm

I started this tableau in september.
The conception and the mounting was a long work of patience but I'm very happy with the result. It was worth doing it !
It was also very difficult to make a nice frame and a system to hold it.

If some of you come in Barcelona, the tableau is displayed in GALEGORY, a store specialized in Lego products in the center of the city (last picture of this page).

You can see other views in the following pictures :









Hope you liked it and thank you for visiting !

Excellent choice for a mosaic. I encountered this artwork first as a jigsaw puzzle (doing jigsaws is another hobby of mine). You managed to pull it off very well. I hope to work on a mosaic myself - just have to find the right artwork to use as my inspiration.

Quoting William Brandt I am a big fan of Japanese wood block prints, and this is one of my favorites. Fantastic job. I really like it.
Thank you very much William ! One of my favorite too clearly

Absolutely stunning, Didier! You captured the energy of the original perfectly. The pixellation is used to good effect in the spray and hardly noticeable elsewhere. This is right up there with your dragon and the best work on MOCpages.

Quoting MCLegoboy ! This is beautiful. I do wish there was an artistic shot of a closeup just to see the colors used better. It's not hard to tell, but there appears to be more colors used than what I know was used.
Thank you Legoboy, The colors are the followings (as designated in "pick a brick") : White, black, brick-yellow, bright blue, medium blue, earth blue, medium standard grey and dark standard grey. Maybe it appears more colored for the first picture because the lighting was not natural. Didier
