My object is a Hindu Religious Wooden Deities bracelet.

This object is from my country, Bangladesh. Hindu people wear these bracelets to bring good luck and god's spirit with them so they can do better things in life such as being rich or passing a test or getting a good job. Anybody that believes in hinduism wears it. It is made out of stretchy string, wooden beads, and wood with symbols of hindu gods and goddess. God is special and is religious to hinduism people, it shows why hindu people chose to wear it for luck and they want god's spirit to follow them. I chose this object because it shows my culture because it has symbols and pictures of gods and goddess . This teaches about my culture because by show how religious Hindu people are. In my culture there a lot of gods that we believe so hindu people worship god by celebrating: Pohela Boishakh (which also is Bangla New Year), Durga Puja, Holi, and etc.  Some gods on the bracelet is Rama, Krishna, Ganesha, Durga, Saraswati Shiva, Laxmi, Hanuman (həno͝oˈmän/), Laxmi, etc.   I’d love to ask my ancestors or makers or these bracelets: how did you know what the God’s looked like?In conclusion, I chose this object because it represents my culture by showing that hindu people are religious.
