Brancusi: ignored by his country, doodled by Google

By celebrating the 135thbirthday of Constantin Brancusi with a doodle made of his seven works, Google has done more for the Romanian-born sculptor than his own country. Back in 1933, when talking about his carvings, Brancusi said: “I’d like to see them in parks and public spaces, with kids playing around … and no one knowing what they are and who made them.”
