Artistic Facial Expression Analysis: Common Expression In A Public Suicide
———- Warning: Graphic Contents ———-
When I watched a video of Bosnian Croat military commander, Slobodan Praljak (left) drank a bottle of poison and committed a public suicide inside of the courtroom on November 29 2017, the first thing that came in my mind was another public suicide committed in 1987 by the Pennsylvania State Treasurer, Budd Dwyer (right). Their facial expressions are almost identical.
These are the drawings of their facial expressions, almost a half a second before they made their action. We really don’t see this type of intensity in people’s face regularly.
