"The Great Wave off Kanagawa (神奈川沖浪裏 Kanagawa Oki Nami Ura?, lit. "Under a Wave off Kanagawa"), also known as The Great Wave or simply The Wave, is a woodblock print by the Japanese artist Hokusai. An example of ukiyo-e art, it was published sometime between 1830 and 1833...

Andreas Ramos, a writer, notes:

which we see the mountain. The gigantic wave is a yin yang
of empty space beneath the mountain. (farmer: =what is NOT
SEEN IS SAME IMPORTANT AS WHAT IS SEEN! if you
turn around the picture, the same wave form is seen as a negative)
The inevitable breaking that we await creates a tension in the
picture. In the background, a small wave forming a miniature
Fuji is reflected by the distant mountain, itself shrunk in
perspective. The little wave is larger than the mountain.
The small fishermen cling to thin fishing boats, slide on a
sea-mount looking to dodge the wave. The violent Yang of
nature is overcome by theyin of the confidence of these
experienced fishermen.
Strangely, despite a storm, the sun shines high." LINK

Solana means sunshine.
