Katsushika Hokusai, the man who needed no introduction in the world of ukiyo-e (woodblock printing) during the Edo period, was as complex and multifaceted as any jigsaw you'll ever encounter. Renowned for his boundless curiosity and adaptability, Hokusai had more than 30 pseudonyms during his lifetime, reinventing himself and his art continuously. He likened his evolving styles to the shifting and connecting patterns of a puzzle.

With each piece you interlock, you'll be diving deeper into the mesmerising rhythms of water in motion, as portrayed by Hokusai's brilliant strokes.

As you embark on the puzzle challenge, you'll find yourself captivated by the majestic portrayal of the Kirifuri Waterfall. The artwork is part of Hokusai's iconic series 'A Tour of Waterfalls in Various Provinces', where he masterfully rendered the dynamic beauty and energy of Japan's cascades.

Engaging with this puzzle becomes a testament to the timelessness of art. In a world where immediacy reigns supreme, slowing down to piece together Hokusai's vision offers a counter-narrative, an escape to a realm where every fragment tells a tale.
