The Daruma doll, also known as a Dharma doll, is a hollow, round Japanese doll modeled after Bodhidharma, the founder of the Zen sect of Buddhism. These dolls, though typically red and depicting a bearded man (Dharma), vary greatly in color and design depending on region and artist. Though considered an omocha, meaning toy, Daruma has a design that is rich in symbolism and is regarded more as a talisman of good luck to the Japanese. Daruma dolls are seen as a symbol of perseverance and good luck, making them a popular gift of encouragement.
Many children's games make mention of Daruma. Here is one of examples of a game called Daruma Otoshi.
Daruma Otoshi is an ancient game consisting of a daruma doll in pieces, usually in the colors of the rainbow, with five pieces in total from top to bottom: head - a man's face, blue, green, yellow, red. The game is played by using a small hammer, and you must hit each of the colored pieces, from bottom to the top, without letting the pieces fall during the game.
This particular Daruma Otoshi was made for the well known tech company NEC.
Made of natural wood, with red, blue, yellow and green rings. Standing 7.5 inches tall, he is in great vintage condition showing some dents on rings from playing.
