Fear of immediate danger

A lot of people see this as an expression of fear or terror, and that was indeed the intention of the Scottish artist, doctor, and nerve specialist Sir Charles Bell in the nineteenth century, with this depiction of a face showing ‘fear of immediate danger’. Bell’s work on the expression of the emotions was a major influence on Charles Darwin’s book on the subject, published in 1872.
