    This piece arrived in the mail today. I'm not sure whether the box is original to the piece or not, but it's definitely old. I really like Dharuma statues. This looks like a roly poly, but it doesn't roll.

      Wow! I've seen some that looked like people, and the current stylized Daruma, but this looks like it's in-between.
