The Hanged Man
Type of Artwork Painting
Location The Guertena Art Gallery
Gray Area
True Guertena Exhibit

The Hanged Man is one of Guertena's paintings located in the Guertena Art Gallery in the game Ib. It depicts a man hanging by his foot from a red rope. The image is set against a dark teal background, surrounded by a brown frame.

In the normal gallery (as well as in the True Guertena Exhibit), the tag on his shirt does not display any numbers, while in the Gray Area, the tag displays the code (6295) to open one of the doors in the same area. Upon interacting with the painting in the Gray Area, Ib will have the choice to view the face, the clothes, or the whole body of the man in the painting. The man's eyes are normally black, as if they are just sockets; however, if Garry had kicked the mannequin head in the mirror room, then upon exiting the face view of the painting, the man's eyes will glow red, frightening Garry.

In one of the books on a shelf in the Tree Room of the Violet Area, the painting is revealed to be one of Guertena's more famous works. It began as a page filler for a magazine Guertena worked for. For a short time, the portrait was sold as a tarot card, but at present date it became nearly impossible to find.


The Hanged Man can be first seen in the Guertena Art GalleryGarry will be staring at it and will not respond if Ib tries to interact with him.

The Hanged Man can be seen again in the Gray Area.

In the True Guertena Exhibit, The Hanged Man can be seen in the room to the right of the reception area in the main gallery. It is displayed next to Couplet Towers on a wall that is on the right side of the room.
