Alaysha’s Ofrenda

Born 1998
My Dear Grandmother
Feathers, clay, flowers, candles, paint

I dedicated my ofrenda to my grandmother because I didn’t know her well. I heard that she was a nice person. She is special to me because she died when I was only six months old. The picture in my ofrenda is of my grandmother and me when I was a baby. I included flowers that were her favorite, candles to light the way to the ofrenda, and bright colors to make the ofrenda warm and happy. The feathers represent the she is in heaven and the cross represents Christianity. The cotton balls are for the clouds in the sky. The microphone signifies that she liked to sing and each pearl represents her children and grandchildren.

Mi querida abuela
Plumas, barro, flores, velas, pintura

Yo dediqué mi ofrenda a mi abuela porque yo no la conocí muy bien. Yo he oído que era una persona simpática. Ella es especial para mí porque era mi abuela y se murió cuando yo tenía sólo seis meses. La foto en mi ofrenda es de mi abuela y de mí cuando yo era bebé. Incluí flores porque eran sus flores favoritas, velas para iluminar el camino a la ofrenda, y colores brillantes para que la ofrenda será feliz y cariñosa. Las plumas representan que ella está en el cielo y la cruz representa el cristianismo. Las bolas de algodón representan las nubes en el cielo. El micrófono significa que a ella le gustaba cantar y cada perla representa a sus hijos y nietos.
