Artwork followers and Japanese tradition buffs might discover themselves with a brand new LEGO set this New Yr’s Day. The corporate introduced right now that it’s set to launch a LEGO Artwork package based mostly on the basic woodblock print The Nice Wave off Kanagawa on January 1, 2023.
The 1,810-piece set options layers and components of assorted shapes to construct the reimagined work of Katsushika Hokusai. LEGO intends the set to permit builders to calm down and discover their interior movement. To assist with that objective, the corporate features a soundtrack of calming music with the artwork set.
Hokusai created The Nice Wave of Kanagawa in 1831, and the artwork options Mount Fuji within the background with the large threatening ocean waves within the foreground.
