Now that I look at it, the pattern of the swords over the person's head seems similiar to the pattern on the bedspread. Both involve straight rows, horizontal lines, like a plowed field.

The swords are rows of sharpness and discomfort; the rows on the spread contain images of growth or rebirth (flowers) and the cycles of life (zodiac signs).

The swords are above the person (in his mind) whereas the blanket actually touches him, offering real comfort. I have an image in my mind of the person lying down and pulling the beautiful spread over him, at which point the swords will disappear.

Just my ramblings...
