My key chain

I never knew why my father had a collection of skulls in the apartment and between them was my grandfather's picture. First, I didn't know what could be important for me, or something that could represent me, until my dad gave me a skull key chain, he first didn't tell me why, until I saw around me. Most of the things I see in the apartment are skulls. My family believes a lot in death and I always saw pictures of deceased relatives near the skulls. So at the end of the day, I could tell why so many skulls along with photos of deceased family members. My grandfather, although he had not been the best father for my father, my father continues to pray for him. My family pray for my dead familiars, even if they weren't the best.

Place(s): I got the artifact in the Bronx, U.S. and it was made in Mexico.
