The Family Piano

In Fun
Relationship: Child of im/migrant

The object that I chose to do is a piano that has been in my family for more than 50 years. This is more of a fun object to use. The Piano is made out of wood and has iron inside of the piano. It is used by pressing a key down which makes a certain noise depending on where it is placed on the board. This object came from Mexico. The person who told me about the object is my dad which was his grandmas, but she passes it on to him. This object is important to me because I know one day it will be passed on to me and I will pass it on to the next generation. It connects to me through the history behind it and how it has managed to stay in the family in good condition.
