The Daruma family.
The Daruma family. Japan. In a big temple near Osaka, a sort of tabernacle shrine packed with Daruma shows how devoted are the people to these symbols of good luck and hope. Usually, a person who has a wish buys a Daruma doll, which has both eyes blank, and paints in black just one of them. If the wish comes true, the believer paints the other eye and brings the doll back to the temple.
