A special interactive print that can help you focus on a goal - this paper daruma was hand printed using carved wood printing blocks onto heavy bamboo paper - it is textural to the touch, and has gold foil detailing. The character on the belly of the daruma means 'fortune'. Coming with two black pupil stickers, It comes with a little instruction leaflet which says:

"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.

Paper Daruma:
Think of your goal or resolution and place one black sticker as one of the pupils in one eye. Hang the daruma up somewhere you see often or frame above your work space. The daruma is printed on sturdy bamboo paper, and can be cut out if desired. When you have achieved your goal or resolution, use the other sticker to add a pupil to the other eye. You can then either keep the print as a reminder, or recycle."

Printed on heavy bamboo paper with a soft finish.

Paper size: trimmed to A3 (297 x 420 mm or 11.7 x 16.5 inches).

Titled and signed in pencil and stamped with nakamura characters [中村] in red ink. Comes unframed, but is shown here for illustrative purposes in an IKEA ribba 50x50cm ready made frame. You may not receive the exact one pictured.
