Many thanks. It is great combination. Not many images like this out there. Thought I'd give it try.
I'm not quite sure what make it may be, but is a replica of something (may be clearer on my other image).

I like the sword over her forehead! But why have another over her mouth?
2 swords seams strange for me.

Nice lightning on here hear and body. The swords are a bit over exposed (to mutch lit). She has a great look in her eyes.

Thanks for your comment. The 2 swords are used mainly for framing and directing attention her eyes.
The image might seem strange to some. What I'm trying to communicate in this image, "is this safe or unsafe", something on the edge.
