Great observations. To me the box represents his beliefs. That's how we limit our world, which helps keep life manageable. However, we also stymie our growth by attempting to halt life's flow. The swords show his thoughts returned to him, having circled and strengthened.

I see four sure punctures: left foot, left hand, left forearm and chest. It looks as if the sword behind his head punctures him too. Foot immobilized, he can't move. Hand and arm immobilized, he can't create. Heart immobilized, he can't love. Brain immobilized, he can't think. Seeing the other seven swords intensifies his fear, so he contracts and tenses again.
