As the most traditional version of Daruma it has no pupils: you will draw the left pupil when you set a goal to achieve (love, education, etc.) and his unique eye will remind you every day your ambition. Once the goal is reached, the second eye can be drawn, making it a nice souvenir, or even a trophy!
This daruma without inscription on the belly leaves more space to write the name of a couple to wish a happy wedding, a happy anniversary, or any message or wish.
When needed, and to free space for new Daruma, Japanese people sometimes bring Daruma to the temple to be 'returned to God' by being burned in a ceremony (we can offer this service for free if necessary, just contact us).
Daruma are available in different sizes, colors and craft styles.
