About the work

Lucky charm: on New Yearʼs Eve, people in Hakata purchased a princess Daruma doll
that stands facing the lucky direction, and on New Year's Day, there was a custom to display it on a Shinto altar, wishing for the family's safety for the year. The body is painted with a wishing jewel.
