I am doing my best to get hold of one of each colour of these limited edition A Bathing Ape daruma, called ‘Daurmilo’…! Having always been interested in daruma, the model said to bring good fortune. When you receive a daruma, you should paint one eye onto him, making a wish. When you achieve your dream, you can paint the second eye. Legends about daruma claim that Bodhidharma sat facing a wall in meditation for nine years without moving, which caused his legs to fall off…!
Nigo, founder of A Bathing Ape, has released these, currently on display at an exhibition in Kyoto. If anyone can help us get a couple of these, please get in touch.
