Well, when I look at the second image, which reveals details not immediately-apparent in the first, I suppose that I immediately arrive at two conclusions:
(1) Never present – nor labor upon – a detail that will not be “jumps right out at you obvious” in each-and-every image that you choose to present.
(2) “Therefore, quite probably …” Every detail that you choose to include had better be ‘stupendously obvious.’
Your “filigreed detail” is amazing, but at best it only accounts for one-third of the sword. (The next third is “I don’t know what,” the last third is nothing.)
Therefore: "take the pattern that you have applied to one-third of the sword, then first apply it to 100% of the sword, then make the entire pattern obvious.
Finally – simplify the rock-pattern upon which the sword now sits, because “the entire purpose of ‘the pattern upon which the sword now sits’” properly ought to be to (at a glance …) reflect the viewer’s attention away from the rock and right back onto the sword. Nothing more, nothing less. “The Sword is the Almighty Product.™”
