Hokusai’s Wave spotted in Virginia Beach

I was wandering around Virginia Beach on assignment for The Arts Adventurer when I saw this chalkboard drawing (below right) outside of a restaurant. My first thought was “it’s a take-off on Hokusai’s Wave,” although it is drawn as a mirror image. Do you see the resemblance when compared to Hokusai’s original (below left)?

I seem to find Hokusai Waves in numerous places: remember the sidewalk art? Or the iPhone emoticon?
