Why is he screaming. What terrible thing did he see or hear that causes that look of abject horror on his face. This icon of the expressionistic art movement evokes so much emotion in so many people. He is like a wreck on the freeway, you can't stop looking.
This amigurumi was inspired by the Edvard Munch painting by the same name. It is my favorite of the Expressionistic art. I have been around art history for my whole life. I was taught at an early age to enjoy it. I am glad I had the chance to bring one of my favorites to "life"
