Abstract: A number of basic concepts and terms employed in discussions of metaphor will first be explained. The framework used is Max Black's (1979/1993) interaction theory, which will be complemented by other relevant studies. After the introduction of the pertinent concepts, they will be applied to some de-contextualized pictures in order to demonstrate how Black's theory can be made productive for non-verbal metaphors.
