3211 McConachie Way, Vancouver International Airport, Vancouver, British Columbia BC V7B 1M8, Canada

Canadian artist Lutz Haufschild created this 131-foot-long stained glass panel inspired by the iconic Hokusai painting The Great Wave off Kanagawa. Using thousands of pieces of aqua and green-hued glass, this piece reflects sunlight as if it were shining off the ocean. The majestic Great Wave Wall piece suitably serves as the backdrop for artist Bill Reid’s Spirit of Haida Gwaii (known as the Jade canoe) sculpture and can be found in the departure lounge at Vancouver International Airport.
