A spirited Bizen ware okimono of the Japanese Zen Patriarch Daruma, standing in greetings with hands in hidden mudra, his expression is sober, intense and full of radiance; in a formidable presence undoubtedly from the hands of an able artist, and congregated by the alchemy of earth and fire. It is note worthy that this Bizen-yaki okimono is unglazed, its ironlike hardness and gradual colors on the silken surface are from the direct result of firing in a kiln, where 1200°C was maintained for over two weeks. It seemed that the passing of time has enhanced this statue with an unctuous ambiance; through which we conservatively attributed the okimono was made in the late Meiji period.

Bodhidharma (Chinese:Da Mo), was a 6th Century Indian sage, the blue eyed Brahmin who arrived China in A.D. 526, and later brought Zen Buddhism to Japan where he is known as Daruma. He is regarded as the chief of the Six Patriarchs of Buddhism. He teaches that perfection must be sought inward through meditation rather than outward observances. It is said that after first nine years of prolonged meditation, Bodhidharma cuts off his eyelids and threw them on the ground where they flowered into the first green tea plants. In honor of Daruma, to this day an early form of the tea ceremony is carried out in Zen monasteries in Japan.
