A spirited wood carving of the Japanese Zen Patriarch Daruma, the 6th Century Indian sage Bodhidharma, the blue eyed Brahmin who arrived China in A.D. 526. 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. Here in this representation of Bodhidharma, with the glass-eyes inlaids he looks out intensely in a wide stare. In honor of Daruma, to this day an early form of the tea ceremony is carried out in Zen monasteries in Japan.
