Daruma is the Japanese name for the Bodhidharma, the 5th/6th century founder of Zen Buddhism. Daruma dolls, traditionally made of papier-mâché, are modeled after this figure, and are typically painted red and feature a frowning, heavily mustachioed Daruma face. While they are considered toys, Daruma dolls are strong symbols of perseverance and good luck, and are often given as a gift of encouragement. The eyes of a Daruma doll are typically blank when sold, and the recipient colors in the first eye when he or she sets a goal. The second eye is filled in when the goal is achieved, so that the one-eyed Daruma becomes a reminder and motivator to accomplish what one has set out to do.
