The figurative sense or proper meaning ?

The figurative sense: the proper meaning, what is it? The proper meaning is the first meaning of the word, it is concrete, e.g. "He fell in the yard". The figurative sense is when we give the word an abstract meaning, it is an image; example: "His eyes are bigger than the stomach". What happens if the expressions in the figurative sense suddenly express the proper meaning? See the posters made by our year 5 students!
