This was sort of done for the Bifrost Tarot card project. I was inspired, so I made it, realizing it would serve a dual purpose. The suit of Swords contains symbolism of the mental powers. Also, at the time, I was studying self-annhilation, as represented by my favorite Mahavidya, Chinnamasta, who this picture greatly represents, without the blood. It represents destruction of the Ego, and paradoxically ultimate self-control.
