Origami Daruma

Info

Daruma is a traditional japanese doll, symbol of perseverance and good luck. Fill one eye and make a wish (or set a goal); fill the other one when it is achieved. In this model you can fill the eyes by making a simple valley-fold as shown in the gif above!
You can find more information about the Daruma doll on Wikipedia.
