Image description

The image shows the face of a person who expresses the emotion called wonder. 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, 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 and above the eyes, are rendered as two horizontal, embossed lines, curved on the edges, towards the temples on each side of the face. 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 is open, and has the upper and lower lips separated and rendered as two embossed lines, curved inwards.

The hair on the head is cut short, starting from the edge of the forehead, and on either side it frames the face above the ears, left and right, being shown embossed.

In case of wonder, the forehead is wrinkled in the center. This wrinkle is represented by two dashed lines, slightly curved upwards, placed horizontally and parallel in the middle of the forehead, above the eyebrows.

The eyebrows are raised towards the forehead, with the arched corners lowered towards the temples, representing the wonder. The eyes are wide open. The mouth is open in the shape of a circle, due to the upper jaw spaced apart by the lowering of the mandible from the bottom of the face. By this descent of the bony structure of the lower jaw, the skin of the face is stretched vertically to the maximum. Thus, the gaps between the jaw and the mandible are filled by the cheeks that are retracting towards the inside of the mouth, and two hollows appear, instead of the puffy cheeks. These are caused by the skin stretching, giving the look of a drawn face. The hollows on the the right and left side of the face are highlighted by a dashed line, placed vertically, and slightly curved outwards, located at the corners of the mouth.

Unlike surprise, in case of wonder, the features of the face are not so exaggerated, the eyebrows are kept horizontal, although they are slightly raised above the eyelids, and the eyes and mouth are not open or widened to the maximum.
