allegory (artistic device) (symbolism (artistic concept), artistic devices, ... Associated Concepts (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Method of expressing complex or abstract ideas in the literary or visual arts under the guise of another subject of aptly suggestive resemblance. An allegory is principally constructed from personifications and symbols. In art, allegories include combinations of personifications and/or symbols, which, on the basis of a conventionally agreed relation between concept and representation, refer to an idea outside the work of art. The properties and circumstances attributed to the apparent subject of the allegory really refer to another subject in an extended or continued metaphor. Allegories may have meaning on two or more levels that the viewer or reader can understand only through an interpretive process.

Additional Notes:
Portuguese ..... Método para expressar idéias complexas ou abstratas nas artes literárias ou visuais, sob o disfarce de outro assunto de semelhança sugestivamente apropriada. Uma alegoria é construída principalmente a partir de personificações e símbolos. Na arte, as alegorias incluem combinações de personificações e / ou símbolos que, com base em uma relação convencionalmente acordada entre conceito e representação, se referem a uma idéia fora da obra de arte. As propriedades e circunstâncias atribuídas ao assunto aparente da alegoria realmente se referem a outro assunto em uma metáfora estendida ou continuada. Alegorias podem ter significado em dois ou mais níveis que o espectador ou o leitor podem entender apenas através de um processo interpretativo.
