Close up view of the artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll

This may be the ultimate and coolest Buddhist wall scroll - unless you are looking for a diety beyond this man (we can help you with that too).

The poem written on this wall scroll refer to this one version of folklore regarding this key figure in Buddhism. The story goes that Da Mo stood, facing or staring at a wall for 9 years to seek an answer to life, the universe, and everything.

The poem goes on to talk of his ability to float on a reed stalk after reaching the goal of enlightenment.

It's generally believed that after Da Mo (or Dharma) became enlightened, he directly went on to establish "Chan Buddhism" in China. When this form of Buddhism hit Japan, it became known as Zen Buddhism (Chan is the Chinese pronunciation of the same Kanji character known as Zen in Japan).

More Zen and other Buddhism terms

This part is going to confuse you, as this man is sometimes portrayed as being Persian, Indian, or Chinese. And he has been given many names such as Bodhidharma or simply Dharma. He has a name in virtually every language. Here are a few of them:

In Chinese, his name is damo. This is sometimes Romanized as Da Mo, Damo, or the full name Putidamo or Putitamo.
His Name in Japanese is "Daruma" which is probably meant to sound like "Dharma" as in "Bodhi-Dharma".
In Korean he is Boridalma.
Vietnamese: Bồ-đề-đạt-ma.

If you want to know more about Bodhidharma / Da Mo you can probably do a terrific Bodhidharma Google search.
