In “Tablet of Prosperity,” executed between 2003–2007, Nya’ uses a keen selection of materials charged with imagery and metaphors to portray the incorruptible, unyielding and unwavering power of the blood covenant between God and Man.
While the sackcloth and ashes covering the scribed text represent the fall of Mankind, the untold sorrow of living in a cursed earth is represented by the pebbles and desert sand, and the confusion, strife and fear of living a carnal life is alluded to by the charred Braille creating a hedge of sorts around the massively textured piece.
However, Hope, Light and Life, (essentially the Kingdom of God) restored to Mankind through the blood covenant represented by the opulent streak of crimson patiently cascading from the roof of the picture plane. The imbedded scroll, from which the intense light feeding the entire picture is emanating represents the foretold Word from the prophets of a coming Messiah who will be slaughtered and through His blood ransom God's saints from every tribe, language, and nation, thereby restoring Man’s citizenship, Kingship and authority to reign on earth.
