Daruma doll

Nelson Yrizarry made a LEGO version of a Daruma doll. These round figures, popular in Japan, are stylized representations of Bodhidharma, the founder of Zen Buddhism. They are seen as talismans of luck; the oval shape allows them to right themselves if knocked over (like Weebles), symbolic of bouncing back from life's difficulties.
