A special interactive postcard sized print, to help you set and focus on a goal or resolution. Each daruma is hand printed using natural oil-based Japanese pigment ink onto 320g oatmeal 100% recycled card (with natural flecks). With 'nakamura' [中村] stamp in red pigment ink beneath image. The decoration on the belly of the daruma is in gold foil, and the character '福' means 'good fortune'.

Each postcard comes with a little instruction leaflet:

"Daruma figures are a common new year tradition in Japan, where they are used as a way to help you achieve your goals. The paper mache dolls are sold ready painted, but missing the black pupils in the eyes. When a new doll is bought, the new owner paints in one eye pupil, whilst thinking of a particular goal or resolution and then sets the doll in a place that they will see it often and be reminded of the goal they are trying to achieve. When the goal is reached, or resolution fulfilled, the other eye can be filled in. It is then often returned to a shrine to be burnt.

Postcard Daruma:
Think of your goal or resolution and colour in one pupil with a black pen.
Pin the postcard somewhere you see often, such as above your work space. When you have achieved your goal or resolution, fill in the pupil of the other eye. You can then either keep the postcard as a reminder of your achieved goal, or recycle and move on to your next goal!"

Card size is 148mm x 105mm.
Available as singles or packs of five.
