Google Doodles - 0 views

    Just thought I would add this page about controversial Google doodles! Its interesting which ones were viewed as controversial.

The Miró one is interesting, too -- the fact that the artist's heirs felt ripped off, even though it was original artwork in the *style* of Miró rather than anything actually copied from a digital version of Miró.
