The goal under consideration is to see the framework of values as the spiritual relations of humanity focusing on the creation of humanistic values through the realization of language values through axiological linguistics. Particular attention is paid to the imagery of phraseological units, with which their axiological status can be associated. The detection of the extralinguistic situation, under the influence of which a phraseological image arose, is necessary for understanding the national specifics of Russian and German phraseology. To reveal the image, the article analyses the internal form of lacunar axiological phraseological units. The analysis detects differences in the way of thinking and associations of Russian and German speakers. Studying the picture of the world reflected in the mirror of the axiological phraseology of two languages allows us to compare national stereotypes of behaviour, mentality, national-cultural experience, traditions, and life values of representatives of Russian and German societies.
