Dharma dolls are popular in Japan and are said to be modeled after Bodhidharma, the founder of the Zen sect of Buddhism in Japan. Daruma dolls
are seen as a lucky talisman and a symbolism of perseverance in Japan.
Their round shape are said to be a symbol for picking oneself up after facing an obstacle. Many dharma dolls are roly-poly toys in Japan that come back upright after being knocked down.
Dharma doll also typically has both eyes left unpainted. Upon setting a goal, one paints in one eye of the daruma doll. When that goal has been accomplished, the second eye can then be painted in. It is believed that upon giving the dharma doll his full sight, one’s wish will be granted.
This dharma doll is in green-a color associated with health, and has the inscriptions welcoming luck on its belly, and "welcoming wealth and luck" in gold on the side.
