In this paper, we examine the word face and its synonyms as a source of metaphors in nineteen-century Polish. The analysis is conducted within the classic CMT framework. The data examined mostly comes from a small but well-balanced corpus of nineteenth-century Polish and dictionaries. We examine three areas of metaphorical expressions outlined in Yu (2001, 2008). Of these three, two are present in texts: ‘face’ as a highlight of appearance and as an indicator of feelings and character. The absence of ‘face’ as a locus of dignity in the historical data is explained by the fact that the concept came to Polish much later, in the twentieth century.
