kokeshi "KÔFUKU daruma" 幸福だるま


 

🔸Daruma Kokeshi pair Red & white by Usaburo

The perfect combination of two traditional figurine characters, Kokeshi and Dharuma. 

The character "幸" is on the white Dharma and "福" on the red Daruma, and when the two are paired together, they make the lucky word "幸福" ("Happiness" or "be Happy"). Also, the daruma is symbolic of persevering in pursuit of a goal. Wish good fortune comes to you! 

Hand painted, Usaburo Kokeshi made in Gunma Prefecture, Japan.  

 

 

Die perfekte Kombination aus zwei traditionellen Figuren, Kokeshi und Daruma. 

Das Schriftzeichen ”幸" steht auf dem weißen Dharma und "福" auf dem roten Dharma, und wenn die beiden miteinander gepaart werden, ergeben sie das Glückswort "幸福" ("Glücklichsein"). Außerdem steht der Daruma als Symbol dafür, ein Ziel beharrlich zu verfolgen. Möge das Glück zu Ihnen kommen!
