According to legend, Bodhidharma was an Indian (in some accounts, a Persian) prince who became a meditation master and then came to China to introduce Zen (Chan) to the people there. Bodhidharma is sometimes described as "toothless" due to his grimace. As a Zen artist, Muchaku has captured the essence of Daruma, and shown it to us in the form of ink, brush, and paper.

About the Artist
