My Puppy Puppet


This object comes from my sister’s teacher who gave it to my sister. It’s used as a puppet and it entertained me when I was a kid. It reminds me of my sister and all the bad and good things my sister and I went through together. All the materials are made in China which is my culture. It also reminds me of the time I went to China when I was really little. It reminds me of when I was riding the plane to China, I brought it with me on the ride; It is important to me because it has been a part my life for so long.

Place(s): China
Year: 1978
