Nyandaruma にゃんだるま

「 にゃんだるま 」とは?
What is “Nyandaruma” ?

イラストレーター ai sayamaがつくる猫のだるまの作品。
当初は通常のだるまに猫を描いていたが、耳や口ができ、より猫らしい姿へと進化。
だるまは願掛けの縁起物。願掛けの意味で片目に目を入れ(開眼)、願い事が叶ったらもう片方の目に目入れして両目を完成させます(満願)。
そう、このアート作品を完成させるのは、あなたです。

“Nyan” means meow. “Daruma” is a traditional Japanese tumbler doll representing Bodhidharma.
Nowadays “Daruma” is regarded more as a bringer of good luck.
It is considered a symbol of perseverance and reaching the objective, as it always stands up positively.
“Daruma” fairs are held mostly at New Year’s time, and sold “Daruma” have no eyes
painted on the face. The possessor usually puts in one eye and makes a wish,
and at later stage, paints in the other eye of the doll when he has had his wish realized.
