I felt this was a great use of visual metaphor because it creates the idea that the lego block are literally the block to the imagination. By having these simple block like figures together with the use of more identifiable figures as the shadows. The idea that these blocks are the tools for children to express their imagination is expressed.
Post #8-Visual metaphor and the American Patriot(Argumentative)
I found this example of visual metaphor to express the characteristics of the marketed car. By taking the rhino which is strong, tough, aggressive and protective. These traits are then expressed in the terms of the hidden and unknown for the rhino is placed underneath the 'Skin' of the vehicle.
I though this was a good example of visual metaphor as it uses the idea of chocking and the activity of smoking-which is knowingly causing self harm.

This visual metaphor was a good comparison between the reality and what people really think.

I though this was a good example to include for the use of a tomato bottle being cut and divided as you would cut a real tomato communicates the idea that it is literally the sauce is created only of fresh and organic tomatoes
This visual metaphor is also an illusion. I thought this was a good example for the idea of health is represetned through the symbolic meaning of a heart. This meaning has than been further developed through the creation of the heart being from sneakers and drink bottles therefore communicating the idea that if you purchase and use these products you would therefore be a health person
