Since its creation 184 years ago, Katsushika Hokusai's work, also known as the “Great Wave,” has been mobilized as a symbol of not just tsunamis, but hurricanes and plane crashes into the sea

What type of outside source does Macgregor use in this excerpt?

The Great Wave: Hokusai" best supports the conclusion that the artist intended the wave to feel threatening. He stands half in and half out of the world; he is the men, But he cannot see below Fuji The shore the color of the sky; he is the wave, he stretches His claws against strangers.
