The term “rear view” has one usual meaning, and that is, looking at what is behind. However, with a play on words, it can also mean a view of the rear of another object. This could either be the backside, the back, the buttocks or simply an object facing away from the viewer.

The back has significance in a variety of aspects of human society, particularly as a way of implying nudity without actually displaying it. The back is frequently exposed by certain styles of clothing and is also a prominent area for tattoo display. It’s also one of the more vulnerable areas for both humans and animals, as it is less defensible and easier to attack through surprise.

The rear view can be viewed as disrespectful, as the object is not attentive to the viewer, which can create interesting conceptual scenarios in addition to the aforementioned significance of the back.

Here’s some examples to illustrate:
