daruma

Something interesting from Rose’s pile of trash.

She has a Daruma doll in the back with only one eye filled in.


The interesting thing about the Daruma doll is that there might be a little more to it than you think. Daruma dolls start out with completely blank eyes. They’re often used for motivation. When trying to fulfill a goal, the owner of the Daruma doll will usually fill in one of the eyes, representing the goal they’re trying to fulfill. Looking at the doll can remind one of the goal in case they’ve forgotten about it. Once it IS fulfilled, the owner will fill in the other eye. It’s interesting that the Daruma only has one eye filled in. Maybe Rose had another goal she was trying to fulfill herself, but never acted on it? Maybe it was used as motivation for Rose to have a child? Or it can even be some sort of foreshadowing.


or it’s just garbage
