The Great Wave at Kanagawa
Hokusai fixed here a fleeting moment, a very brief natural phenomenon. This representation of a snapshot is characteristic of ukiyo-e, "pictures of the floating world and ephemeral." This print even gives a literal view of the term and is a metaphor: Hokusai captures the moment when the gigantic wave, foaming, threatens to sweep over the boats and engulf vulnerable fishermen whose fugitive existence is subject to the whims of nature.
