The Brass Boy Paragraph
The Brass Boy Paragraph
Story pending

My family artifact is a little brass statue of a boy peeing. But his “willie” broke off, so my great great nanna stuck a brass nail in the hole it left. The statue is about three inches tall and one and a half inches wide. It is in the shape of a little boy peeing, and it is made of brass. We may not know how it came into the family, but it was always on my great-great-nanna’s mantle right in the center. The people who have owned this are my great-great nanna, my great-nanna, my nanna, and my mum. It may not have value money wise but it has sentimental value, and a very funny story behind it.
