This card reimagines a famous work of art by rolling, coiling and shaping small strips of paper to create a cohesive three-dimensional design.  The artisans artfully transform paint strokes into paper strips using the ancient art of quilling.  Historians have been able to date the art form back to Ancient Egyptian times where crafters would use a bird's feather (quill) as the tool to coil the paper upon.

The Great Wave off Kanagawa is one of the most iconic works of art of its time. The woodblock print was created by the Japanese artist, Hokusai, during the Edo period around 1831. Mount Fuji can be seen in the background depicted very small in comparison to emphasize the magnitude of the spiraling and foaming tidal wave. This work of art is thought to have inspired many other artists' works throughout history and remains one of the most common art recreations to this day.
