The face screaming in fear emoji is stylized to look like the artist Edvard Munch’s iconic painting, “The Scream”. The emoji has large, pupil-less eyes and the upper half of its head is shaded blue. It holds its head in its hands on each side, as if to contain its horror, and its open mouth is extended into a scream. It is primarily used to show immense shock or dismay, but usually with a slight tinge of irony or exaggeration. This slightly humorous side is compounded in Samsung’s version, which shows a tiny little ghost escaping from the screaming emoji’s mouth! The emoji is sometimes called the “Home Alone” emoji, due to the similarity between it and Macaulay Culkin’s iconic scream, which was in itself, also based on Munch’s masterpiece.
