The tiny figures of Raphael and Tobias heighten the enormity of the landscape as well as the challenge of their journey. The rugged terrain would also conjure a sense of distant lands for viewers accustomed to the flat Dutch countryside. Raphael points to the semi-drenched cliffs, suggesting that he knows that the arduous mission will come to a happy end.
