Preparing for battle

Here she stands, the Queen of Hearts, ready to cut. I've messed this one up a bit: The seven-branched laser sword should be to the left and the cleaver to the right, just like in . It occured to me right when I hit the "save" button. Oh well. Maybe you can do better? If you feel like it, hit the "add a painting" link and try for yourself.

This is the second occurrence of the Queen of Hearts. She resembles the pronunciation initial "qi". The Erechtheion resembles the pronunciation final "e", and the first tone means "in front of". Thus, "qie1" is "the Queen of Hearts in front of the Erechtheion".
