This is what happens when your clay sculpture rolls forward and onto the floor face-first. He looks plenty angry about it. No, they didn't do it on purpose. Tefallio tells the story.
So, full disclosure (because I know redditors have hawk eyes), the original sculpture and the flat face one are different. The original was mine, the flat face one was my classmate's (we had the same model).
When he was bringing his work to our teacher for grading, the face slipped for the wooden board and met the ground with a perfect "thud". The sight itself was quite funny, because it looked like a third of its face was in the ground, but the result upon detaching it from the ground was hilarious. Even our teacher shed a few tears of laugh.
To answer your question, the unlucky sculptor received a good grade on the project, because the teacher saw his work before the disaster. -via reddit
