With 10,000 supports, it has been confirmed to advance to the 2nd LEGO IDEAS Commercialization Review in 2022. THE GREAT WAVE OFF KANAGAWA: LEGO IDEAS

A reproduction of “The Great Wave off Kanagawa,” perhaps the most famous of Katsushika Hokusai’s works. 1556 pieces.

Build a powerful big wave three-dimensionally.

The ship that rushes through the big waves is a high-speed ship called Oshobune, which was used to transport seafood to Edo.

From my experience of working on a ship before, it’s hard to imagine such a small ship sailing on a big wave day, but at that time there would have been no safety standards, so it seems that he was quite unreasonable.

Speaking of the Great Wave off Kanagawa, Junpei Mitsui

Speaking of the Great Wave off Kanagawa made of Lego (R) blocks, Junpei Mitsui’s work in 2020 is too famous.

Approximately 50,000 pieces represent the same work three-dimensionally, and it is really impressive! If possible, I would love to hear from Katsushika Hokusai himself!

What is the possibility of commercialization?

Designer LEGOverwatch focuses on cute buildings I am publishing my work.

The Great Wave off Kanagawa is a theme that Japanese people would like to see commercialized!

Van Gogh’s Starry Night was commercialized in an almost flat painting style, so The Great Wave off Kanagawa is also a famous work overseas, and if it is commercialized with a three-dimensional design, it may be more talked about than Van Gogh.

This design is also a wonderful work, but if the Great Wave off Kanagawa were to be commercialized with Lego (R) blocks, I would definitely like Junpei Mitsui to design it!

Added July 9, 2022

Junpei Mitsui released an image of the Great Wave off Kanagawa on Twitter that could be made into a product.

It is written in the reply, but when I tried to publish it with Lego (R) ideas, I was contacted by NG because the professional is a related person. I want you to commercialize it from Lego (R) ICONS!
