Dragon Hand Embroidery Denim Daruma

About the Item

Daruma is a traditional Japanese figurine that means to get up again and again even after falling down. It has been loved as a decoration to ward off evil or to express wishes for about 400 years. The meaning of the face beard is the crane for the eyebrows, the turtle for the cheek hairs, and the beard for Mt. Crane and turtle mean longevity in Japan. Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan, so it means to maximize one's ability. This ACRAFT Denim Dharma is a piece of denim that is disassembled and made entirely by hand. Before you put this Dharma in your place, I hope that you can confine your thoughts towards this Dharma, such as your own goals and beliefs. As the Dharma is always watching over your feelings, please live a life that is not ashamed of the feeling you had when you first set the Dharma. And please enjoy it as a work of art.

  • Pair of Framed Japanese Embroidery Art Portraits
    Located in Atlanta, GA
    Artistically framed for display in a slight shadow frame with non-reflective pixie glass, these pair of embroidery art panels from Japan are dated circa 1910-1930s, end of Meiji to early Taisho period. This period was the peak of the Japanese oversea expositions, when all things Japonisme took Europe and America by storm and left long-lasting impact on western art and design. The influence, however, was clearly not one-directional; As when Japanese artists, artisans and dealers experienced western art, it in turn inspired and impacted on the aesthetics of the Japanese art made for the western tastes. An interesting crop of art forms quickly emerged with a particular outlook that bridged the east and west, with the fundamental techniques still rooted in Japanese traditions. These rare hyper-realistic embroidered portraits were such an example. They took the essential format of the western portrait that permeated the Victoria and Edwardian Society, but substituted with exotic Japanese subjects and executed in traditional embroidery techniques which had been perfected for centuries by the natives. The two portraits on offer, one an elder man with long white beards and a pair of round spectacles lighting a pipe, and the other a grinning man with a peasant attire, were both set in black background, stimulating an appearance of Classic western oil painting or perhaps even the photograph.
