This is certainly an interesting representation of the Eight of Swords, a card that I always find mildly exasperating (if people could only see how they are throwing obstacles in their own path).

First of all, I was very surprised to see Rapunzel represented with dark hair. I thought she was called by the Prince to let down her hair so that he could climb the "golden stair" (the version of the story in the companion book also makes reference to golden hair). To me the most notable image on the card is the lovely flowers.

The version of the Rapunzel story used here is very dark. Once again I am learning far more about fairy tales than I ever dreamed by studying this deck.
