Life ...in the animal world

There's no art
To find the mind's construction in the face (Macbeth, Act 1, Scene 4)
Is this true? Have we not as a species had the opportunity and intelligence to 'make faces' at each other? Do the functional expressions of our primate ancestors still play a part in this invention?
A stimulating analysis of the faces that apes make is described by Dr. Jane van Lawick-Goodall and Dr. Jan van Hooff.
Introduced by Dr. Desmond Morris.
