From my project based on traditional dolls and figures from around the world, this illustration is inspired by the Japanese Daruma doll.
Daruma dolls are considered to be symbolic talismans, given as gifts to encourage luck and perseverance. The dolls are bought with blank eyes - the recipient paints one eye in to signify a goal or wish. The second eye is painted upon fulfilling the goal. The one-eyed Daruma serves as a reminder to focus on what you wish to achieve.
