In this detail of the painting, we see massive outcroppings of granite acting as guard and gateway to a vast river canyon. The figurative becomes literal as one notices the figure of a crouching man emerge from the rock and at the crest of the cliff, not seen here, the face of the elderly guardian watches over the vast chasm.
