The Hanged Man

This specific piece was to play with this shade of orange-red and some geometric, abstracted shapes. Named after the tarot card.

It depicts a pittura infamante, an image of a man being hanged upside-down by one ankle. This method of hanging was a common punishment at the time for traitors in Italy However, the solemn expression on his face traditionally suggests that he is there by his own accord, and the card is meant to represent self-sacrifice more so than it does corporal punishment or criminality
