Two of Wands is traditionally depicted as a man who is standing on top of a castle and holding a miniature globe in one hand and one of the wands in the other- the second wand is usually standing on its own or affixed to the wall. The wands are connected to fire and are thus associated with passion. The man typically looks over a land that is full of possibility.
