I can't think of swords without thinking of the evocative Rider-Waite tarot swords--this one, for example:

Or this:

Or this:

This picture is more reminiscent of Rider-Waite 5 or Rider Waite 7, in that the figure's carrying a bunch of swords, but I was also thinking about sword-bearing angels and... so on.

I was just going to comment on how I loved the dreamlike quality of the RW sword cards here. I feel this one, as well as the person bound and fenced in by swords - I think we're all too familiar with that feeling, where our fears imprison us and blind us to opportunities we could be taking.

I like how your angel looks gently, wonderingly benevolent, so I'm imagining that zie might be an Angel of Disarmament, charged with helping to bring an end to violence.

Nice to be reminded of the Rider-Waite cards, too. A departed friend once advised me to try finding something I liked in each card, even if I didn't like the card's interpretation. I tried that out with the nightmare card, above, and decided I liked the quilt. :-)

I think this is the first time I've looked closely and carefully at these cards. There's something quite beautiful about them.
