Daruma doll

The Daruma doll represents Bodhidharma, founder and first patriarch of Zen. The most common colour of this doll is red because red was the cloak that the patriarch wore. The doll has a man stylised face with beard and mustache but the eyes are white circles. Using a black ink, you need to draw just one eye and you can express a desire; if the desire will come true, also the second eye can be drawn.
