[We are not taking orders]

The spine-tingling face depicted on this hand-painted kite is that of Bodhidharma, founder of Zen Buddhism. In Japan, "daruma" dolls in his image are purchased by people who aspire to have a major wish come true. When they make their wish, they paint in one eye; when the wish is achieved, they paint the other. Daruma symbolizes strong effort and patience of the kind necessary to bring wishes to fruition. Hand-painted using dyes, this Japanese "Daruma" Edo kite will look fabulous flying in the sky or as an interior decoration. HAND MADE IN JAPAN

We offer Edo kite graphic sheets (without the kite framework) perfect for framing as a decorative addition to your interiors <here>.


The veteran kitemaker who crafts this work of art is Tetsuya Kishida.

We are deeply saddened to announce that Tetsuya Kishida passed away on August 20, 2019.

His love and passion for creating and flying the Edo kites were unmeasurable. We were inspired by his artwork and our gratitude for the opportunity to work with him.
