This piece is about the Crypto Jewish heritage of my Spanish ancestors. Here, symbols from both religions are mixed. The sacred heart is well-known in the Catholic faith and here the vessels are blood lines and point to place names in Spain where my family originates. Raised saint imagery in blue appears at the right ventricle. Inside the heart are three flames that emerge but inside and hidden are symbols from Jewish faith and heritage.
