This is also one of my favorite cards, and I think it is a perfect depiction of the spirit of this trump!
One thing I appreciate about this particular image is how much it seems to emphasize the painful aspect of the Hanged Man - the pain of waiting indefinitely, of feeling so bare to the bone in the cold darkness of the cave, of feeling tied up and twisted every which way. I imagine how awkward and painful it must feel to have so much of his weight being crushed into the bones underneath him. And although he's upside down, in that way, it's like he's still bearing 'the weight of the world' upon his shoulders. And all the while, his expression seems very focused, like he's really tapping into 'mind over body' - but without denying the difficult and painful circumstances, as some might think the point of 'mind over body' ought to be. Escaping the pain is not his goal. He knows that he is gifted with the opportunity to spiritually grow from the challenges posed by life in the physical world, as strange and as frightening as it may be. He isn't wasting his energy on a futile attempt to writhe his way out of the ropes. He is silent. He is trusting. He endures. With his chest exposed, he truly surrenders with an open heart, and it's that which is key to his survival... He feels the contrast between the warmth of his own flesh and the cold, sharp bones of the dead - and to remain so incredibly composed through something so intensely challenging to the senses, he gains first-hand experience of the inherent strength that's being tested within all aspects of his being - body, mind, and spirit. In feeling his own body, in acknowledging his pain, he feels what is hurting - he recognizes what he is made of, what his own "structure" is composed of - who he really is down to the bone and deep in the core... In his stillness, he "moves" beyond the senses; beyond everything he ever thought he knew about himself (bones = the past, memories, illusory losses).
