Small wooden sculpture representing Daruma on stacked sake cups (masu).

Masu was originally a square wooden box used for measuring rice in Japan during the feudal period, today masu are widely used for drinking sake.

In Japanese culture, this figurine is a lucky charm that symbolizes perseverance, luck and success.

A legend says that the daruma owes its silhouette and its name to the monk Bodhidharma ("dharma"), an Indian monk at the origin of Chan Buddhism in China (which later became Zen in Japan) and the practice of martial arts. at the famous Shaolin Monastery. Another version attributes the round shape of the daruma to the notion of perseverance. Indeed, like a tumbler, the daruma always gets up, thus illustrating the famous Japanese proverb “Fall 7 times, get up 8” which encourages you to continue your journey despite life's many obstacles.

Japan fascinates us for its culture rich in traditions and mythological tales. An emblematic and popular figurine of Japanese folklore, the daruma is said to have the power to grant our dearest wishes.
