A wooden "Good Luck" dharma doll with white on red polka dots by Kopi Panas.
In Japanese tradition, the eyes of the firece-looking dharma dolls are intentionally left blank. The owner sets a goal, with the help of the dharma to grant a wish, by painting a pupil in one of the eyes. It is a visual reminder to work towards the goal with patience and grit. Once you have achieved the goal, paint in the remaining pupil with pride and gratitude.
*Each doll may slightly differ from the photo due to its hand-made nature.
