Johnny: “Aren’t the subsequent looking events no longer purely a vipāka viññāṇa?”

Yes. Those subsequent “looking events” are done with INTENTION (thus involve vaci sankhara to think about the mind-pleasing figure and to turn the head with kaya sankhara), and are DONE WITH kamma vinnana. In other words, they involve “sankhara paccaya vinnana.”

Even though those subsequent “lookings” involve cakkhu vinnana, they are INITIATED by mano vinnana.

That is a good question. We need to be thinking along those lines.
