A Daruma doll is a Japanese traditional doll that is seen as a symbol of good luck. The traditional Daruma comes with 2 blank eyes. You can select a goal (or wish) and paint in the doll’s left eye. Once the desired goal is reached, the doll’s right eye is filled. Nowadays you can find cute Daruma dolls and accessories in various shapes.
