More Flaming Sword

One difference between a trip to Eden and a trip to Nirvana is that St Michael's flaming sword runs on auto-pilot, swinging in all directions, so it doesnt matter who you are: crossing the territory's threshold means death. Meanwhile, the flaming sword of Manjusri (in the right hand) represents intellection / critical wisdom / cutting away of wrong views, etc. It doesn't cut anyone but bad guys.

The Wingèd Wierdos have all kinds of arms. Like the 29-Dimensional Flag with its Clap, a kind of fabricated sonic boom. Think of the bad terminator in Terminator 2 and how he could manifest metallic forms from his syntho-mass, like turning his arm into a spike. Or Edward Scissor-Hands; Porcupines.
