The carcass of an animal can evoke a strong reaction by the viewer. The suspended carcass displaying its ruptured stomach cavity tells of a violent intervention. 

The human body is often tested in many arduous situations. Some have the purpose of pursuing sporting achievement or sadomasochistic pleasure. In this painting the subject is hung in a way to maximise extreme exposure and vulnerability, the method of hanging inspired by Francisco Goya’s Disasters of War 39 (1810-20).
