In the Japanese culture, 'hatsuyume' is the word to indicate the first dream one has in the new year. The content of the dream would traditionally predict the fortunate events of the coming year. It's considered especially good luck to dream of 'chi Fuji, ni taka', that is, Mount Fuji, then a hawk.
This belief has existed since the Edo period, but there are various theories about its origin and why this particular combination is so auspicious. It's thought that the reason is the imposing height of Mount Fuji itself (Japan's highest peak), along with the strength and acumen of the hawk. Another theory suggests that this combination is so auspicious because Mount Fuji and falconry were favourites of shōgun Tokugawa Ieyasu.
The woodcut, on Japanese washi paper, is signed by the artist Takenaka Fu, and is offered here in a fine edition from 2016, produced by the historic firm Unsoda of Kyoto, and is in very good condition.
Takenaka Fu, born in 1945, has worked as a designer, and in 1964, received second prize from the Fibre Design Council. In 2003, Takenaka Fu began creating woodcuts, and in 2008 received the Banin Exhibition prize. Takenaka Fu is a currunt member of the Nihon Hanga-in.
