Charming set of 3 pcs. hand painted wooden Daruma. This vintage set will hold a significant place in your decoration whether at home or at your office.

Daruma, the monk who brought Zen Buddhism to Japan, has become a familiar and beloved figure with an important place in religion, art, and folk culture. In Japanese folklore, he is widely seen as a symbol of good fortune and success through perseverance.

This work epitomizes both the creative energy and the conceptual richness inherent in Japanese folk sculpture. Daruma dolls are seen as a symbol of perseverance and good luck making them a popular gift of encouragement.

The left one on the main picture was made by the kokeshi craftsman, Hiroshi Mito (1933-2019). Mr Mito made Zao Kei (style) kokeshi in Yamagata Prefecture. The wooden daruma is signed on the bottom by the artist. Written on the top of the head is the Japanese character for good luck or ‘fuku”. Good luck so this little daruma will bring you much good fortune!

The right one on the main picture was made by Yoshiki Sato (1949-2007). She is part of a set of ten daruma which were sold by the Sony Corporation during the early nineties. Sony asked prominent craftsmen representing the ten different traditional kokeshi strains (at that time) to make a daruma. Yoshiki Sato was a Tsugaro craftsman.

Sadly, I couldn't identified the artist of the middle one which is signed and seems to be entitled "Daruma Sunset".

They are in very good vintage condition with some minor scratches.

Please look at the pictures carefully to asses the condition of the items.
