The Secret of the Runes or Sunrise From the Summit of Mont Blanc is a response to the artist's own experience of climbing the mountain in 2010. 

The emotion of the experience is communicated through an array of symbols, including runes and Schinkel's Iron Kreuzberg war memorial, referencing rapture and death simultaneously. The sum of the symbolism is intended to remind both the artist and viewer of the inherent dangers involved with losing oneself to a purely Nietzschien idea of nature.
