Around 2 years ago, my grandma asked me what I wanted for my birthday. I didn’t want anything, but she told me I had to pick something. I told my grandma I wanted a piece of art. Either painting or an object. I didn’t want something so big or expensive. Weeks later my present came in the mail. It was a painting “La Ultima Cena” which is “The Last Supper”. The painting was woven and very colorful. It was made by a famous street artist in Mexico City. The painting cost around $10,000. It was really beautiful so my family quickly put it up. Whenever some family or friends will come over my mom will always show them the painting. What the painting means to my family is bringing everyone together, remembering the old times, and just enjoying being with your family. We had this painting for over 2 years already. My mom told my sisters and me to never take out the woven painting from the frame since it’s really fragile. We try to keep it safe and clean the frame every now and then. The painting will forever be something that we will cherish in our hearts.
