Japanese Daruma traditional doll. The eyes of Daruma are often blank when its sold. The recipient of the doll fills in one eye upon setting the goal, then the other upon fulfilling it. In this way, every time they see the one-eyed Daruma, they recall the goal.
This is a piece from picasso that i saved to use as a reference for project pinch pot. i really like the shape and design on this piece. picasso's pottery (which he painted although someone else made the actual pots)
