Make your best attempt to articulate the meaning of the image, using Barthes terms. What is the linguistic message? What are the non-coded iconic messages? What are the coded iconic messages? Identify the denotative and connotative aspects, the use of anchorage and relay, the semantic and lexical components, etc. Consider the effectiveness of the advertisers rhetoric, and the ideological metalanguage employed.
