Dala Horse

The object I chose is the Dala Horse. The Dala Horse is a small hand crafted wooden horse, with painted designs, usually in bright colors. My grandmother has a Dala Horse that she got from Sweden when she went to go visit her son and his family who are from there. It came from Dalarna, Sweden. Every time she looks at the horse, it reminds her of her son and grandchildren in Sweden, that she doesn’t get to see. Every time I walk into my grandmother’s house, this is the first thing I see because she keeps it right near the door on a shelf. I chose this item because of it’s importance to my grandma, and because it also reminds me of my family from Sweden.
