The object that I have is a clock. This clock is from my country Guayaquil, Ecuador. My grandparents use this clock to tell time. It is made out of wood, is about a foot long, smooth on the front, and rough on the back. The clock is in the shape of a rectangular prism. I choose this object because it’s very special to my family and I. I thought that this object taught a lot about my culture. It teaches you my culture because the object is handcrafted. As you may not know many of the things that come from where I am are handmade. My grandparents immigrated to America in the year 1968. My grandparents are connected to this object because it reminds them of their country. Not only does it remind them it also reminds me of my country and my cultures.
