Europe has no outstanding political icon. Yet, lots of weaker motifs and widespread iconographies give Europe a face to be seen. The motto of the European Union proves to be well founded, when it comes to images and counter-images of Europe. The texts in this volume analyze central, peripheral, and external iconographies; they add some interesting facets to our knowledge of these various different visual constructions of Europe.
