Traditional Japanese Daruma 

-----Description-----

You cannot visit Japan without seeing countless lucky Daruma (達磨) dolls and little round red guys at temples and in many shops and homes.

They are also called Okiagari Koboshi or tumbler dolls. Because of their shape, if pushed or knocked, they spring back up, making them emblems of persistence, optimism, and determination.

Traditionally you have one Daruma doll in your home. They are eyeless when you purchase them. You make a wish and draw in one of the eyes. If the wish comes true, you draw in the other; if not, you wait. If you want, you can return to the temple at the end of the year and burn the doll.

This purification ritual lets the god of that temple know that you are not giving up the pursuit of your wish but are going to take another path to make it come true. Very cool.
