OUR FIRST FULL PRODUCTION OF KIDS GIS IS OUT MOST BEAUTIFUL DESIGN YET!!
The Daruma is a symbol of the founder of Zen Buddhism Bodhidharma who was known for his more extreme practices such as spending an entire decade with his eyes kept wide open. This is reflected in the look of the doll and becomes a representation of watchfulness and awareness. It is common as in the case of the Holdfast Daruma Rash Guard and Kimono for the initial Daruma doll to only have one eye painted with an iris. The dolls are created in some regions as toys but in others, the dolls are made to contain a wish or goal made by the owner.
Traditionally an iris (or pupil) is later painted onto the blank spaces when a wish has been fulfilled. In this way, the Daruma doll is a representation of that wish and a reminder or motivator for the owner to strive towards their goals. . The Daruma doll is seen as a symbol of perseverance and good luck, as well as a symbol that embodies motivation and goal setting.
The phrase "Nana Korobi Yaoki" is also synonymous with Daruma ... the meaning is fall down 7 and gets up 8 .....
It's a meaning that embodies the essence of Holdfast fight gear ...NEVER GIVE UP!! VICTORY IS ALWAYS POSSIBLE
