My object is a wooden elephant from India. My dad’s side of the family is Indian, and I am 25% Indian. Traditionally, elephants were very useful in India. They were useful for transporting crops, resources, and people. The elephant I have is decorated with blankets and designs that are pretty and artistic. This shows India’s past history, art, and style. I do not know most of my family that lives in India so having this wooden elephant lets me see a little bit of my own family’s culture.
