    I like the idea of what you have done there with the frame, but doesn't that scratch the blades?

    It's an acrylic ball from the hobby market... The inner part is a printed foil and behind the printed foil there are two other foils from a LCD tv, which were perfect, because they create some kind of steroscopic effect of the eye... There are also some lights in it...

    But I think it just looks more amazing on the photo, as it is...

    I had some concern about that initially, but it hasn't really turned out to be a problem. I supposed because I never take them out, so there is no friction. And the metal doesn't do most of the load bearing. It is hard to see, but if you look at orcrist you can see the frame is recessed, so most of the swords hook over the frame rather than laying on the metal.
