visual language (cont.)

This image (left) by Lawrence Zeegen contains metonyms for the inventor through the devices of the wheel and the light-bulb relating to perhaps the most famous of inventions

This image by Chris Moore found in The directory of Illustrators Originals, contains the image of Big Ben a widely accepted synecdoche for London but also (especially in the context of the image ) for civilization (remember Planet of the Apes?).
