Red Daruma by Ienaga Ichido (1893-1951)

Don't Know
(brushed by ) the old fellow Shikatsu

This unusual "Red Daruma" was brushed for a specific pupose: to bring healing to the person (or persons) in the room where it was displayed. Unlike the typical Darumas brushed in black, these medicinal red Darumas were thought to be especially potent in chasing away inner and outer demons, and they were always brushed by request. The inscription means, in this case, "I don't know sickness" and "Illness does not affect my original Buddha-nature which remains pure and unsullied."
Ichido, abbot of Tofuku-ji in Kyoto, was famous for his distinctive Daruma paintings. Shikatsu was Ichido's Zen master name.
