Ace Of Swords


ACE OF SWORDS


"Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters."*


! ! !


The Ace of Swords gives the sense of that which is other worldly. The sword used by all in the Suit, hovers over the heart of the kingdom. It is silver of blade, and has a gold hilt and hummel. The hilt is of winged construction, with a blue stone set where the wings meet. The handle is red (as it is for all the swords used here). The blade rises up through a wreath which is the shaped at top like a crown, and looks like a double helix as it wraps around the sword, showing white roses on one side and a second plant on the other side.

Clouds billow around and behind and the sun shines through, glinting in rays off it. One almost expects to hear a Sousa march. This is military and represents the ability to stratagize.
