A mainstay of Japanese tradition, the Daruma doll is an important talisman of luck and perseverance, based on the life of Zen Buddhist Bodhidharma. Each doll is entrusted with an important goal or task, during which one eye is filled in. When the task is completed, the second eye is drawn in – both commemorating the achievement and restoring the Daruma's power of sight!
