Do you know what the DARUMA means?
We grab the explanation from Wikipedia.
If you have a chance, please take a look at this!!!
Daruma dolls, also known as dharma dolls, are hollow and round Japanese wish dolls with no arms or legs, modeled after Bodhidarma the doundeer and first patriach of ZEN.
Typical colors are red (most common), yellow, green and white. The dolls have a face with a mustache and beard, but its eyes only contain the color white. Using black ink, one fills in a single circular eye while thinking of a wish. Should the wish later come true, the second eye is filled in. It is traditional to fill in the left eye first; the right eye is left blank until the wish is fulfilled.
