'Galactic Wave' 5" x 7" Postcard (set of 6)
Item #: POSTCARD-GALACTICWAVE
'Galactic Wave' 5" x 7" Postcard (set of 6) The Postcards come individually wrapped in protective sheets. Jon Lomberg pays homage to the great Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) who created a famous woodcut of a giant wave with Mt. Fuji seen on the horizon. Lomberg reinterprets this image in an astronomical context, showing the disk of the galaxy as a cresting wave, with young stars spraying out from the wave. The galactic center can be seen in the background, in the position Mt. Fuji occupies in the woodcut.
