Smart Ikkyu San - Teru Teru Bozu Paper Toy Free Download


Smart Ikkyu San - Teru Teru Bozu Paper Toy Free DownloadThis is a Ikkyu San paper toy from AB9. Teru teru bozu is a little traditional hand-made doll made of white paper or cloth that Japanese farmers began hanging outside of their window by a string. In shape and construction they are essentially identical to ghost dolls, such as those made at Halloween. This amulet is supposed to have magical powers to bring good weather and to stop or prevent a rainy day. "Teru" is a Japanese verb which describes sunshine, and a "bōzu" is a Buddhist monk, or in modern slang, "bald-headed"; it is also a term of endearment for addressing little boys.

Ikkyu san is an anime based on the historical Zen Buddhist monk Ikkyū that follows his mischievous adventures as a child during his stay at Ankoku Temple. In each episode, Ikkyū relies on his intelligence and wit to solve all types of problems, from distraught farmers to greedy merchants.

The anime was well-received by all ages in Japan and throughout Asia, as it didn't rely on violence. Even when violence appears, it is usually presented in a mild or necessary way.

A running gag of Ikkyū-san is that whenever Ikkyu is trying to think of a plan, he sits in a lotus position, wets his two index fingers, and rotates them above his head.
