Daruma doll or daruma is a hollow, round figurine typically made of gourds or paper-mache. Dharma are modeled after Bodhidharma, the founder of Zen in Buddhism. Dharma figures are typically red and show a bearded man though they do vary in color and design depending on the region and creator. Though regarded as a toy or a mere symbol of good luck by some, Daruma has a design that is rich in symbolism and is regarded more as a talisman of luck to the Japanese. Daruma dolls are seen as a symbol of perseverance, making them a popular gift of encouragement. The doll has also been commercialized by many Buddhist temples to use alongside the setting of goals for the future.
