The Inheritance centers on a human heart from which exploding lungs are attached, implying death. The pale pink silk embroidery hints of the bleeding and death of the human. This work speaks about the forces against the acceptance of the hybridization of the United States. Conflict is found in many areas that were once colonized. The source of many of these conflicts, lies in past and present colonial policies, the mistreatment of some populations and the privileging of others.
