    I found this wood ??? Thing ??? Carving??? I am not really sure what it’s purpose is. I found it today and right now it was found a home on my mantle next to my face jugs. It is 9” tall and 7 1/2” wide. It is not hardwood. I am guessing pine or fir. I am guessing mid century 60s or 70s. Any ideas on this? Guesses welcome! !!!!

      Japanese Carved Wooden Daruma Doll. The Daruma doll is also known as a Dharma doll.

      my.kunst….you are the best. That is exactly what it is. I had never seen a daruma doll much less even knew they existed. Thank you so much for solving this mystery.
      It amazes me how knowledgeable and helpful this community is. Thanks again for enlightening me.
