Daruma Wish Doll by Areaware



Material: Beech Wood
Dimensions: 2.75 x 2.5 x 1 inch

The Daruma is a traditional Japanese talisman for focusing on personal goals. Modeled after Bodhidharma, the founder of Zen Buddhism, it is a popular offering of encouragement. When one is received, set a goal or make a wish and fill in one eye to illustrate your intention. The other eye watches over you as a constant reminder and guide.
Once your goal is reached, fill in the other eye and display the Daruma as a symbol of your success.

Pompadour
is a style of haircut which takes its name from Madame de Pompadour.

The pompadour was a fashion trend in the 1950s among male rockabilly artists and actors.
In recent years the pompadour hair style has been adopted by those enamoured with vintage culture of the late 50s and early 1960s that includes antique cars, hot rods, American folk music, rockabilly bands, and Elvis Presley.

In modern Japanese popular culture, the pompadour is a stereotypical hairstyle often worn by gang members, thugs, members of the yakuza and its junior counterpart bōsōzoku, and other similar groups such as the yankii (high-school hoodlums).
In Japan the style is known as the "Regent" hairstyle, and is often caricatured in various forms of entertainment media such as anime, manga, television, and music videos.

A pompadour is often created by combing the sides of the hair back, while fanning the top of the hair forward and curling over itself. There are numerous ways to sculpt a pompadour. Some only curl the front few inches of their hair up, while others comb their hair back and use their hands to "push" it into its desired place.

Triangular Daruma Sankaku

[ . BACK to DARUMA MUSEUM TOP . ]

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

SANKAKU Daruma 三角だるま・三角ダルマ
Triangular, conical Daruma

The Daruma with a sharply pointed head, called “Triangle Daruma” (sankaku Daruma) is a clay doll produced in Northern Japan in the province of Echigo, village of Suibara.(水原)。
新潟県水原(すいばら)

This is a real roly-poly doll with a special weight at the bottom.

In 1806, the first generation Imai Denjuuroo started making these dolls in the tradition of clay dolls from - Fushimi - Kyoto with the colors mixed with laquer.

famous Imai Tokujiroo of Suibara in Niigata Prefecture. He passed away when he was almost 100 years old.

The Family Imai is now in the eights generation producing this funny Daruma. It has become a standard present in this area for a wedding and at the birth of a child.

Some of these dolls are now also made in other areas and also of other materials, like paper or wood.
The paining of the face is a simple dot eyes, dot-nose and mouth-line, and is quite humorous.


There are a few varieties of these dolls in the Tohoku region, but their origin seems to be in Aizu Wakamatsu, Fukushima.

Since it is a strong symbol of getting up again (okiagari), it was well loved by the silk farmers, as an amulet to hope the silk worms would "get up" and produce a lot of thread.

Fishermen put it in their boats to "get up" when they were in a difficult position at sea.

新潟の三角だるま From Niigata

越後の漁師たちの間では、昔から縁起物とされてきた
CLICK for more photos

Since the bottom is heavy and the doll stands up allways, it is a good-luck charm for the local fishermen of Niigata, who “want to float a boat in need as fast as possible”, a play with the word “uki-agaru”, to get up, to float.

越後の三角ダルマは、

その独特の形から全国のダルマ玩具の中でも異色の存在だ。かつては高田、柏崎、見附今町など各地で作られていたらしい。「三角のオキアガリコボシというのは、180年くらい前からあったんですよ。それを先代が今の三角ダルマの姿にしたんです。」
 制作しているのは水原町山口にある今井家、通称「鳩屋」。現在、7代目伝三氏が当主である。初代今井伝十郎が人形作りを始めたのは、文化年間(1806)という。山口人形は京都伏見人形の流れを汲む土人形で、粘土で型を作って丸一日焼き、漆を混ぜた絵の具を塗ったもの。時代の流れにつれ色彩に工夫がこらされ、素朴な中にも郷土色の濃い芸術作品として、生まれ変わってきた。

 6代目徳四郎のとき、戦争などの理由で製作が中断されたが、昭和31年に地元水原町の力強い支援を受けて、製作を再開。三角ダルマの名が天下に響くこととなった。「ひょうきんな表情が魅力でね。縁起物だから、結婚式や出産の祝につきものだった。こういうおもちゃ、今は少なくなってきたね」。伝三氏は父の意思を継ぎ、退職した12,3年程前から手伝い始めたという。現在、8代目の和博氏が後継者として修行中だ。
 郷土玩具は土地土地の生活風俗や、祖先の願いを反映して作られてきたもの。三角ダルマも味わいのある玩具として、水原の人々に愛され、育てられてきた。その表情を見ていると、手作りの愛情が伝わってきそうだ。

Binchō-tan or white charcoal
or binchō-zumi (備長炭) is a traditional charcoal of Japan. It dates to the Edo period, when during the Genroku era, a craftsman named Bitchū-ya Chōzaemon (備中屋 長左衛門) began to produce it in Tanabe, Wakayama. The raw material is oak, specifically ubame oak (Quercus phillyraeoides), now the official tree of Wakayama Prefecture. Wakayama continues to be a major producer of high-quality charcoal, with the town of Minabe, Wakayama producing more binchō-tan than any other town in Japan.

The fineness and high quality of binchō-tan are attributed to steaming at high temperatures. Although it is often thought that binchō-tan burns hot, it actually burns at a lower temperature than ordinary charcoal but for a longer period of time. Because it does not release smoke or other unpleasant flavors, it is a favorite of unagi and yakitori cooks. Due to difficulties in identifying the producing region, the name binchō-tan has come into broader use to designate white charcoal generally, and even products from outside Japan, as well as those made of other species, have come to use the name. The amount of binchō-tan sold domestically in Japan markedly decreased following a 2004 export restriction promulgated for forest protection by the People's Republic of China.

To differentiate the aforementioned "non-pure" products, there is a movement to call binchō-tan produced in Wakayama Kishū binchō-tan.

Binchō-tan has found uses other than as a fuel. Because it has numerous small pores, it can absorb chemical substances. Bits can be added to rice during cooking to remove chalky flavor, placed in shoe-cabinets to absorb odors, and put in rooms to freshen the air. There are many more supposed benefits and health values of white charcoal. Currently there are a number of binchō-tan-based consumer products on the market such as socks, shirts, shampoo, cosmetic products, and many more.
Binchō-tan or white charcoal is harder than black charcoal, and rings with a metallic sound when struck. Wind chimes and a musical instrument, the tankin ("charcoal-xylophone") have been made from it.

black friday
the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States, traditionally the beginning of the Christmas shopping season.
On this day, many retailers open very early, often at 4 a.m., or earlier, and offer promotional sales to kick off the shopping season, similar to Boxing Day sales in many commonwealth countries. Black Friday is not actually a holiday, but many employers give their employees the day off, increasing the number of potential shoppers. It has routinely been the busiest shopping day of the year since 2005 . . .
