thanks to @monkichidaruma for sharing lovely photo!
Daruma is popular as a lucky charm in Japan.
It is imitates the seated posture of Bodhidharma,the founder of the Zen tradition of Buddhism.
Daruma doll made so as to right itself when knocked over.
It reflects the spirit of the proverb “Nanakorobi Yaoki (Fall seven times, stand up eight)” and symbolizes persistence.
