In Japan, the 6th century Indian Buddist monk, Bodhidharma, known as Daruma, found enlightenment upon meditation in a cave. In the process, his limbs shriveled and his eyelids were cut off. Hence, he is famously represented by a papier-mâché doll. Considered the protector of households, businesses and political campaigns, Daruma dolls are sold without pupils. These are painted in when its possessor's wish--a victorious election or successful and profitable year, perhaps--has been voiced as well as achieved. Along this red doll's bumpy surface lies the Japanese character for luck and fortune painted in gold strokes. Wish someone prosperity with this small but meaningful token. Made in Japan.

    An Ideal Gift
    June 14, 2010
    The Daruma is an ideal gift for almost any occasion such as birthdays, graduation, friendship etc. Everyone begins a new adventure and the story of the Daruma makes it appropriate as a gift.
    • Almost a universal gift.
    • Processing orders and deliveries from Mrs. Lin's is excellent
