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. The Japanese character representing prosperity, luck, and fortune graces the smooth, red Daruma in brilliant gold strokes. Considered the protector of households, businesses, and political campaigns, Daruma dolls are sold sans pupils. These are painted in when its possessor's wish--a victorious election or successful and profitable year, perhaps--has been achieved. This daruma is more a display piece and may not upright all the time. Made in Japan.

    This Daruma doll is much more than I expected. It is quite large and is great for all of our office staff to sign after we make our commitment.

    I have never seen one in person, and my brother in law loves Japanese culture so I got him this for Christmas. It looked really cool and it arrived in a very timely manner, well wrapped up for shipping safety :)

    I purchased this for a friend who is having trouble finishing his Master's thesis. Having one eye looking at him has really given him a needed push.
    • Beautiful. Arrived intact and on time.
    • None.
