    Welcome to the forum, afaz.
    'Wall of frowns' could mean several things. Could you give us some more context, please?

    Without more context, I would assume that it means a group of unhappy people.

    After the Principal's speech about new regulations, he found himself staring at a wall of frowns. (the faces of unhappy students)
