    Need advice on literary devices, thanks teachers

    Dear teachers,

    In the following sentence:
    The clothespin becomes that soldier standing at attention.

    What literary device is being used in it?
    Is it more of a metaphor or a personification?
    Please advise, thanks.

    Without context I would say personification - I presume this comes from a story in which a clothespin is used as a toy.
