Kokyu Mishima-goe Pass
In this picture it seems as if Hokusai is expressing a natural philosophy: how nature is great, while on the other hand human existence is small. A giant tree, so large that even three men trying to surround it cannot reach each other’s hands, represents the greatness of nature. In the background we see the great figure of Mt. Fuji, with summer clouds rising around her. Despite this magnificent structure, the entire picture is finished with simple color tones such as navy, green and gray: reminding us of the beauty of nature.
