The Hanging Man

A naked man is hung up by the armpits at the far end of a room. He makes a sad impression, not just because of his dangling indisposition, but because of his diminutive proportions. Every visible detail of the skinny body is presented, but child-size. The suspended man, with his drooping head and transcendent air of concentration, recalls the sacred archetype of Christ on the cross. It’s as if, like Christ, he is hung up for maximum humiliation in a punishment that might be rehearsed in holy rituals for an obscure redemptive purpose.
