Hold fast with your 1-of-1 collectible Daruma Aither ”token“.

“The Daruma is a traditional Japanese doll modeled after Bodhidharma, a Zen monk who folded himself into a zazen meditation posture for nine years. The dolls are for bringing good luck, making wishes, and achieving goals. A constant reminder of what the Japanese call the ganbaru “fighting” spirit, the Daruma’s unique shape allows it to return to its original position even if knocked over — a physical representation of the popular Japanese proverb: 七転び八起き (nanakorobi yaoki), which means "Fall down seven times, stand up eight.””

One makes a wish or sets a goal and paints one black pupil onto the Daruma doll. When the goal is reached, or the wish comes true, one then paints on the second pupil.

⁂ How this works: Each Daruma Aither Collection "round" will be based on a common theme — plus one (1) "special edition" within each. A round lasts 1 week (7-days) at which time all designs will be live to bid on using Ethereum.
