This piece illustrates a turbulent family relationship. The canvas depicts a chest with focus on the heart. The artwork utilizes textures and layers to mimic veins and uneven patches of skin that are reminiscent of healed scars from previous battles. Crows are birds seen capable of displaying acts of aggression when challenged hence they were selected to represent parental figures and are angled to express bickering and parental power struggle. Red thread from the heart is tied to their feet and hauled whilst they fight, representing the pulling of one?s heartstrings._
