Signifying truth in more than words alone

Words and Images 12

On voit autrement les images et les mots dans un tableau.

One sees the images and the words in a picture differently. [The word over the picture of the flower is “mountain.”]

I’m a little cautious about this one, but I take it that there’s an uncontroversial sense to it: “When you look at letters and look at images, you process the visual sensations differently for the letters and the images.” If I’m right, that’s true enough, but I’m not sure how it advances any particular point. Maybe you see it differently.
