Ace of Swords Tarot Card Description

A hand emerges from a dark grey cloud in a grey sky. It is holding a sword upright. A crown encircles the tip of the sword. Two garlands hang from the crown. Opinions differ as to what these garlands are and what they represent, however I believe they represent victory and knowledge. Six golden leaves from the tree of life float down near the hilt of the sword. We see jagged mountains stretching to the horizon.
