Today is Igor Stravinsky's birthday, and it has inspired Google to create an effete, sub-Chagall image to surround their lettering.The iconography is a little strange: there's a firebird, a few floating note-heads, some not-very-pagan-looking flowers and a caterpillar – I don't actually know of any Stravinsky pieces about caterpillars, but I suppose that's just a bit of Google-ised artistic license.
Igor Fyodorovich Stravinsky, Russian born in 17 June 1882.

He was a quintessentially cosmopolitan Russian who was named by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people of the century. In addition to the recognition he received for his compositions, he also achieved fame as a pianist and a conductor, often at the premieres of his works.
