A Daruma (達磨) is the votive representation of Bodhidharma, the founder of Zen Buddhism. In particular, it refers to the legend according to which, after spending nine years meditating, his limbs abandoned him, thus becoming pure spirit. Since ancient times it has therefore been considered a powerful lucky charm and every detail of it, such as the crane-shaped eyebrows and the turtle-like beard, is designed to evoke good omens, just as his expression conveys a proud and fighting spirit. In its golden color, it is nicknamed "Daruma of victory", as it is given as a gift on the occasion of exams, interviews and important meetings. This is a Daruma-mikuji, and therefore inside it there is an o-mikuji (written fortune). By pulling the red thread at the bottom, an o-mikuji appears which shows one of the five types of luck: dai-kichi (great blessing) , chū-kichi (medium blessing), kichi (blessing), shō-kichi (small blessing), and sue-kichi (future blessing) - all in Japanese. When the wish is expressed, one pupil is drawn, when it is fulfilled, the other pupil is drawn and it is kept in plain sight, like a talisman. Ceramica, rope, paper. For those who face a challenge, be it an exam, an interview, a special meeting, an oriental encouragement that is also a wonderful talisman to keep! 3 cm x 3 cm x 4 cm
