to me it looks like he was trying to hide in the box: he's huddled up, cringing in the back corner of it, his arm up to shield himself. but he's been found out! a spotlight shines on him from our perspective, casting sharp shadows, while the swords penetrate his hiding spot, and himself.
i think this is the dirty truth finally coming to light, a surrender of sorts (grudgingly - not willingly). something is finally being let go, put down, put out of its misery. it hurts but it has to be done.

one other aspect of this card that i think is interesting is that it reminds me of the classic magic trick: sawing the lovely assistant in half. this could allude to the fact that we often get caught up in dramatic scenarios that later prove to be simply an illusion...
