Everything said here is very interesting and add a new depth to my understanding of this card! Indeed one should not only see it as a bad omen simply because the picture is quite disgusting and disturbing

I would like to add something. In French we have the expression "couper la poire en 2", which means "to cut the pear in half". I've looked it up and the equivalent in English seems to be "to meet halfway". So it's about making a compromise, sacrificing something to make the situation equal for everyone. Yet in this case it's like the intention was to make an equal separation, but the result is not the expected one. Clearly one side has it better than the other (the head part that can regenerates) and it was clearly painful (not a clear cut) for both parts involved.
