Jagged Vision - Animation Time!

Today's Animation Time features the Jagged Vision Rig.
The Jagged vision twists and lifts itself up into the air. Where it hovers and spins slowly. As it spins the two swords nearest to it raise up and begin to orbit around it. Then the two outermost swords lift up along with the rocks and remains around the alter. After everything has been aloft for a little while, the outer swords plunge back down, followed by the inner swords one at a time, then the rocks and remains drop, and lastly the jagged vision itself stabs back into place with a little recoil.
