Princess Dharma Doll

Dharma dolls also come in the form of Princess Dharma (姫達磨, hime daruma) and Lady Dharma (女達磨, onna daruma). This contrasts greatly with traditional representations of Dharma, who, accredited as the father of many martial arts, has traditionally been depicted as very masculine with rough facial hair.
