X-ray Synopsis:




This drawing, an original x-ray of Nya’s work “Heir of Inheritance,” reveals the protection, provision and promotion that accompanies a human who resides in the light of his position as a child of God. However, to clearly comprehend the key subject matter alluded to in the x-ray, it is eminent to examine a word used in the New Covenant to refer to citizens of God’s Kingdom; a word revealed in the following statement to indicate unequivocally that Man is not from earth:


“We are therefore Christ's Ambassadors…”


By definition, an ambassador is an accredited diplomat sent by a country as its official representative to a foreign country. They are a diplomatic agent of the highest rank who is accredited to a foreign government as the resident representative of their own government. 


While their assignment as a diplomat is temporary, there is one cardinal attribute of an ambassador’s office alluded to and depicted in this dense graphite x-ray that is important to underscore as it clearly reveals the spiritual identity, inestimable heritage, incalculable wealth and unsurpassable protection every child of God has in Christ. And that is how an ambassador only speaks what their government tells them to say.


Essentially, instead of expressing their own opinions, thoughts and ideas as well as pursuing their own ambitions and plans, an ambassador is only committed to their nation’s interest and only speaks their government’s position regarding every issue. As depicted by the solid gold dial in the figure’s right breast (representing The Holy Spirit), the silver coated (H) insignia and the coded Bible reference (5:20) rendered vertically close to the foot of the picture plane, every Spirit-filled child of God represents the Kingdom of Heaven here on earth. To that end, they only speak what their home country (Heaven) tells them to say as alluded to by The Word of God covering the loins of the figure and the implanted Bible references in its breast.


Furthermore, as an appointee of the state, an ambassador is a legal property of the country and a legitimate agent of the nation hence all their expenses are settled by their home government. Similarly, an ambassador of Christ, sent from Heaven to dominate, subdue, control and replenish their field of calling through their unique gift is not expected to use their own resources to establish Heaven’s will on earth. 


As illustrated in the x-ray by the rare coins as well as the innumerable jewels lavishly adorning the figure, every Spirit-filled child of God pursuing their Heavenly Father’s will on earth has unabridged access to the common wealth of Heaven.

X-ray Condition:




Only 100 versions of this drawing (heir of inheritance. x-ray 11) will ever be produced.


Color and texture are personally added to each x-ray by the artist, specifically the gradients comprised of graphite and ashes, the baked vellum, the ancient coins, and the gold and bronze hues.


The specific shade of gold used for the 100 renderings of each drawing as well as the texture created on them will be different. This therefore makes each x-ray unique and impossible to replicate.


The algorithm employed by Nya’ to produce the unique shades of gold used for each rendering is documented by the gallery and will be included on the certificate of authenticity accompanying the x-ray.


Considering the fact that the texture, color and other fine detail graphite marks are painstakingly added by the artist for each rendering, should the x-ray not be available, it requires an allowance of 60-90 days for completion before it is cured, carefully packaged and delivered.


The artwork is delivered unframed, wrapped in humid free conversation paper and packaged flat in a custom box specifically designed to ensure its protection in transit and preservation  over time.
