The swords all pierce through the box, but not all of them pierce through what's inside. To me, the fact that box has been pierced, that its contents are discovered, are what's important.

A lot of cards depict all ten swords stabbing through someone, usually giving the feeling of death. But instead, the death represented here to me is the death of persona, not person. Some people build pretenses around themselves or "put on airs" (ha, get it? Airs? Swords? I'm being clever ), but this card shows the revelation of the true self...who we are, and not who we think we are.

Now he's been discovered.
