Abstract: In this research, the authors succeeded in creating facial expressions made with the minimum necessary elements for recognizing a face. The elements are two eyes and a mouth made using precise circles, which are transformed to make facial expressions geometrically, through rotation and vertically scaling transformation. The facial expression patterns made by the geometric elements and transformations were composed employing three dimensions of visual in-formation that had been suggested by many previous researches, slantedness, of the mouth, openness of the face, and slantedness of the eyes. The authors also surveyed cultural differences of impressions of such simplified faces.
