X-ray Synopsis:

The two important elements in this drawing, an original x-ray of Nya’s work “Heir of Inheritance,” is the sword secured along the figure’s majestic garment and the marvelous light enveloping it.  The sword depicts the person and the power of the rhema Word of God and the resplendent light alludes to the ineffable benefits of dwelling in righteousness.

The code (6:1  7) subtly pronounced along the fuller of the sword represents Paul’s inspired words in his letter to the Church of Ephesus in which he states:

“And take…the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”

What is important to note in this statement is that the word translated “word” is not the Greek word logos, which refers to the written Word but the Greek word rhema.  In essence, the rhema word implies a specific, definite and/or expressly quickened Word granted by The Holy Spirit who is represented by the solid gold dial in the figure’s right breast.

With a rhema Word personally placed by the Spirit of God in his battle-ready hands and with his heart fortified by praise and thanksgiving as alluded to by the garment of praise adorned by the figure, the Spirit-filled child of God (represented by the figure) has real weaponry to use against every enemy opposing his divine assignment of establishing the Creator’s will and purpose on earth.

In actuality, the rhema Word is represented in the x-ray by the coded Scripture reference implanted in the figure’s lower belly close to its loins. To emphasize that it’s a Word from The Holy Spirit, or ‘the rhema Word,’ it is coated in the same gold used for the element representing The Holy Spirit - the solid gold dial. 

Furthermore, as represented by the coded three-digit Scripture reference in the figure’s belly (13: 2), a genuine rhema word from God is precise, meticulous and indefensible. It is similar to a sharp sword in the skilled hands of a warrior adequate to annihilate his enemy with a mere two-inch penetration in a definitive spot.

X-ray Condition:

Only 100 versions of this drawing (heir of inheritance. x-ray 69) will ever be produced.

Color and texture are personally added to each x-ray by the artist, specifically the gradients comprised of graphite, ashes, the baked oval shape vellum, and the gold hue.

The specific shade of gold used for the 100 renderings of each x-ray 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.

Due to 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.
