A mystical mood dominates the composition, as if the depicted landscape is both fiction and reality. The worldly colour tones in the foreground transform into an pale otherworldly glow. The blue distances drowning in the depths of the painting form a sense of poetic contemplation. The majesty of nature and the endlessness of the space strongly point towards the ideas of transience, the eternal clash, the meaning of existence, and the pursuit of spiritual perfection.
