Tarot : The Fingers on the 10 of Swords
'In many modern packs, the Hierophant is represented with his right hand raised in what is known esoterically as the blessing or benediction, with two fingers pointing skyward and two pointing down, thus forming a bridge between Heaven and Earthreminiscent of that formed by the body of The Hanged Man. The Hierophant is thus a true "pontiff", in that he is the builder of the bridge between deity and humanity.'
I suppose if we see the other side in the 10 of Swords we see what is behind the curtain, and the man has experienced initiation. The wreck he is in is turned round by holding on to the knowledge and blessing he has acquired, and the clouds are clearing.
