Kotobuki
$20.00 at Amazon.com

Daruma dolls are hollow and round and can upright themselves after falling over. This contemporary daruma doll is from Aizu in Jap...an, an area known for crafting dolls with this amusing feature, in Japan called okiagari-koboshi (self-righting doll). The doll is modeled after Bodhi dharma, the founder of Zen Buddhism and is regarded as a good luck talisman. Having the admirable trait of always being able to get back up after being knocked down, it is a symbol of determination and perseverance. Traditionally, the doll is crafted without the eyes painted in. The owner or recipient of the doll is supposed to paint one eye in and make a wish and then paint the other eye in when the wish comes true. This particular doll is crafted by a 14th generation daruma and okiagari-koboshi doll craftsman. The contemporary coloration and stylish brushwork are a great example of Japan's next generation of artisans taking something traditional and giving it a fresh, new twist. Look closely and you will see in his brushwork Mount Fuji, cranes and the kanji for long-life (kotobuki), which are all good luck symbols in Japan. Read More
