The Daruma doll represents the Buddhist priest, Bodhidharma. According to Buddhist lore, he lost limbs and his eyelids when meditating in a cave for several years. Hence, the Daruma doll comes with no legs and is usually wrapped in red cloth. This papier-mâché figurine is weighed at the bottom. No matter how many times it gets knocked down, this resilient doll will always return to the upright position. Therefore, it symbolizes an undaunted spirit against failure. Thus, among orthodox Japanese, the Daruma doll is prominently displayed n the home to garner luck. Initially, the eyes are blank or covered with paper. A pupil is painted in within black ink when a prayer is made and then answered. Use this small and smooth, yellow Daruma doll on your car dashboard, on top of a pen or a pencil (there's a small hole in the bottom), or as a table setting accent to help bring luck to dinner guests. Made in Japan.
