This object is called “LA LOBA”.  It’s mostly called “THE TIGER” in english.  I actually found this tiger in my uncle’s house, which is where my family lives in including my grandma, In the very top shelf I saw it with my own eyes and used it to show what we do with it in class.  This tiger is used to scare away bad spirits, and I thought it was interesting to share it for this big study we are learning.  This tiger scares away bad spirits so that it can protect our god and keep him safe.  This is why I want to share this object. This object changed me because at first I did not know the history behind it so I had to research and find out. When I had to do this unit i've been looking all around the house  until I gave up and just asked my uncle and grandma. That's when they gave me the tiger. My mind immediately flashed back and went to the age of 3 or 4. I remembered the tiger! I loved this object because when I was small I used to enjoy the tigers and had a great time!  Now all I did was just paying attention to my object and it was the best object I wrote about. My grandma and uncle always hold onto this object because it gave them so much memories back then in Mexico. They also loved these tigers because they had a big experience with them. In most days in Mexico people make parades which represent protecting our god. So that he can protect us too and take very good care of us.
