Chapter Summary

Face Landscape refers to functions or processes, so that one would always talk about 'visagéification' as much as 'paysagification' to denote make-to-face modes and landscape. Christianity holds on all these points a fundamental place, starting with the visagéification process, if not the invention of the face itself. The face is the Christ. Veronica's, and Saint's faces and other shrouds give undoubtedly the most explicit argument about Western particularity. But in reality all Christian images function as living areas. Visagéfication should be understood as an abstract process, beyond any recognition of a face, which does not mean that its dynamics are not singular. Paysagification is a corollary process, and describes any double visagéification. In Aretino's Three books of the humanity of Jesus Christ, the face of Christ is a true middle component with the body of his mother. The original text of the chapter is in French.
