Quick, black brush strokes and exposed canvas form the two main figures in the foreground, a pair of scholarly monks in an impressionist style.  Into their heads pour rays of light carrying Nordic runes and other symbols, representative of the basis for knowledge and communication.  The scene is of a smoke-filled library, shelves stacked with books, scrolls, and occult or alchemical equipment.  Green and gold tones dominate the piece, and contrast the figures left black and white.
