X-ray Synopsis:

This drawing, an x-ray of Nya’s work “Heir of Inheritance,” exposes the intrinsic nature of every human being’s unique gift and his innate leadership spirit. As represented by the impressive figure standing tall above the world, the sole reason why Man was created and sent to earth is for leadership and his entire genetic make-up and the earth he was given to dominate only respond positively to him when he discovers from His Creator - his unique gift, and his true identity, his heritage, his purpose, his potential and his assignment.

As particularly portrayed in the x-ray by the resplendent discs within the figure (representing the unique gift in every human), God created every person to be a leader in the area of his gifting. God did not create any human to rule, lead and control his fellow Man but to discover his unique gift and manifest the spirit of leadership through his unique gift initially in the field of his calling and ultimately the world.

Birthed upon the discovery, diligent development and strategic, innovative and persistent serving of one’s unique gift to initially his field of calling and ultimately the world, true and enduring leadership is not about Man trying to find followers. Rather, it is the energetic and fervent serving of one’s carefully incubated and prepared gift to the world. In other words, leadership is about being a servant; a consecrated servant who is eternally committed to whole-heartedly please his Creator by serving his Grace granted gift until the world is transformed as alluded to in the x-ray by the resplendent gold and shimmering silver now covering distinct continents on the world map.

Furthermore, as suggested in the x-ray by the faceless nature of the figure, it is not a person’s skin color, ethnicity or physical appearance that will elevate him to become an enduring marvel in the world, it is his quality decision to sagaciously utilize the incorruptible and immortal tool of ‘work’ and become a “slave to his unique gift. In other words, as represented by the massive arms of the figure continuously extending to cover the entire planet, when a person has discovered his gift,  he or she must be swallowed up in his work to meet the constantly growing demands of refining and  serving it.

The word slave also means that developing the gift, refining and serving it must become his single purpose for living. And as alluded to by the coded numbers and letters surrounding the figure, the word slave also means that one must become a learner for life, a student perpetually bound to the bidding of his gift; a slave whose principle task is to fulfill the wants, dreams, desires and pleasures of his gift and assignment for the rest of his natural life.

In essence, this inseparable and irrevocable bond between a Man, his gift, and the Spirit who granted him the gift, (represented in the x-ray by the figure’s hands, the resplendent discs and the coded Scripture verses) is the secret behind the unmistakable dominion of this faceless, genderless and raceless figure.
