This table is used as a medium to make a shadowbox that is functional and artistic. As the shadowbox is typically used to memorialize things. The representation of red paint against the portraits and t-shirt with BLM symbolizes the bloodshed by black people to build this country, as well as the constant blood still shed through police brutality and systemic racism that penetrates all aspects of American society. The Egyptian Pharoah represents the heritage that was taken from black people. The empty bullet shells representing lives lost through fatal shoots like that of Breonna Talyor.
