My hand-woven tapestry gallery is full of expressions and is the result of examining the infinite and subtle varieties of facial expressions. They have names, though I find that to label an expression is to limit it: human response to facial expressions is intuitive and varies based upon experience. These particular expressions stem from 6 months of listening non-stop to NPR news in a tumultuous year.
You may draw your own conclusions.
