Scrolls with Daruma 掛け軸 kakejiku

Many Daruma Scrolls introduced here are from extensive internet search of Ebay, Trocadero and other soucres.

Since they usually disappear soon from the web, I have prepared a safecopy in my photoalbum.

Zen Art Gallery Shambhala


In Zen art, the master does not paint Daruma as an historical figure (or even a saint) but as a symbol of penetrating insight, self-reliance, ceaseless diligence, and the rejection of all externals. In order to bring the image of Daruma to life with brush and ink, the artist must become Daruma. Thus, a Daruma painting is a spiritual self-portrait, based on the individual experience of each Zen master.

Look at this great Gallery of Daruma Scrolls.

Daruma Under Bo Tree, Taisho
CLLICK for original LINK !

Humorous painting on Japanese Zen scroll featuring Daruma sitting beneath a bo tree, Taisho Era, c. 1912-1926. Colorful depiction with ink and colors on silk. Daruma, also known as Boddhidharma, is the known as the first patriarch of Zen Buddhism and said to have founded Kung Fu in China. In this entertaining rendering, he is pictured meditating under the halo of a bo tree. This unusual combination of a serious pose taken aback by an amusingly rendered expression gives an eye-catching overall effect.
Dimensions: 79” high, 21.5” wide.
Nr. 58/59

Gaun (1633 - 1701) - Crimson Daruma


This is a 17th Century painting of the enigmatic Daruma. Depicted with his robe clutched tightly to himself and his face is set in deep concentration. He appears to be summoning his will to control the tumultuous thoughts within. The calligraphic inscriptions are signed Myoitsu, and the top seal below his signature also reads Myoitsu. The seal below this reads Gaun. Gaun (Arima Ryodai) was a practitioner of calligraphy and tea ceremony in Kyoto. He died in 1701 at the age of 69. The larger seal at the top left reads ‘Zenkoku …….Hakurankai’. This translates to ‘the all Japan exhibition of painted treasures’. The painting has just been cleaned and re-mounted – the previous brocade was worn beyond repair. The gold used for the calligraphy, and the deep, crimson red pigments of his robe have faded. It is now in fine condition, and completely stable. The scroll measures 77 by 20 inches.
Nr. 60/61

WILD VINTAGE Japanese DARUMA SCROLL, GOZAN
An erratic mid 20th century Daruma painting signed Gozan in the original signed wooden box; the almost frenzied aspect of the brushwork balanced with the morose look on the legendary figures face. Of course, the Daruma is the founder of Zen Buddhism, and is attributed by the Chinese as the originator of Shao-Lin Kung-Fu. We have been unable to find any information on Gozan; however the name (five mountains) is certainly that of a priest (as originally in Japan the five main sects of Buddhism were represented by five mountain temples). The watercolor and ink on paper image, taken from an unusual angle and reminiscent of the works of the artist Tessai, is set in a very clean border of dark brown cloth, extended in beige. There is some age staining present on the image, but due to the peculiar style of the painting, actually blends in to the background. The scroll measures 19-1/4 by 62 inches (48 x 155 cm).
Nr. 21/22

ZENGA DARUMA SCROLLS, KIUN



A lovely Sanpuku set of three bright early 20th century sumi-e scrolls, Ichi-gyo Calligraphy scrolls framing an image of the Daruma, legendary founder of Zen Buddhism. The signature is a bit difficult to read, but the stamps read Kiun (upper) and Hosen (lower). Typical of characters used for a priestfs name. Each ink work is framed in fresh green brocade featuring bone rollers and measures 7-1/4 by 77-1/2 inches (18.5 x 197 cm).
