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

This wall scroll features Da Mo floating reed stalk - a special power that the legendary Damo possesses.

It's generally believed that Da Mo (or Dharma) 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).

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 達摩. This is sometimes Romanized as Da Mo, Damo, Tamo, 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.
