Here's a beautiful coat of arms for Venice. Naturally it features a lion, symbol of La Serenissima's patron saint, St. Mark. She also holds a sword in one hand and scales in the other. There are elements of both Strength and the Justice cards in this striking image.

You've touched upon a concept that fascinates me yet seems too complicated to tackle comprehensively -- two-card combinations. I love the idea of one Tarot card "changing" (as in the I Ching) into another. The combination you feature here could be Strength changing to Justice, or vice versa.
