The Seven of Swords card portrays a man escaping from a camp of some sort with a bundle of swords in his arms. The man is smartly dressed.

The man sometimes sneaks a look to his back to ascertain whether his escape is being noticed by anyone. The background is of a bright golden sky and sandy terrains. There are a few tents grouped together that can be seen at a little distance.

The man seems to be fleeing away from that group of tents. There are five swords in the man’s hands. There are two more grounded at his back.
