The image shows the face of a person who expresses the emotion called sadness. This emotional state is reflected on the outside, through different facial expressions. There are forty two individual muscles in the face, that are activated by the respective emotion, and impacts facial expressions on the facial elements: forehead, eyebrows, eyelids, nose, cheeks, lips, chin.

The face is oval, rendered blank, outlined, with a broad forehead and a square jaw. The wide ears, on either side of the edge of the face, are rendered as two vertically elongated ovals and cut by a curved line at the top, marking the earlobe. The nose, in the center of the face, is long and ends at the base, above the lips, with a convex or curvy tip with wide nostrils, on either side.

The eyebrows under the forehead are rendered as two sloping lines, slightly curved towards the outer corners, and embossed. The eyes are shown as two blank horizontal ovals, in the center of which is the eyeball highlighted by a thickened circle.

The mouth under the nose has the upper and lower lips closed. The upper lip is rendered by a thinner and embossed line. The lower lip is more prominent, convex and rendered by a blank semicircle, with the curved edge at the bottom.

The hair on the head is short, starting from the upper edge of the forehead, and on either side it frames the face above the ears, left and right, being rendered by the texture of broken, horizontal and parallel lines.

In case of sadness, the forehead is slightly wrinkled, the eyebrows are raised to the forehead and lowered towards the ears with the corners arched, the eyes slightly narrowed by lowering the eyelids. The mouth has unevenly closed lips, so that the upper lip is covered more by the lower lip that is bulging outwards. The lower lip looks bigger and fuller, due to the muscles under it, from the chin, which push it further out.

The mouth is closed, and the face is gloomy. The left and right corners of the mouth are slightly lowered here, in case of sadness, than in states of happiness or joy, where they are much more raised and arched upwards.
