New Delhi: Google, Wednesday, welcomed its users with an origami-themed doodle on the homepage to mark the 101st birth anniversary of Akira Yoshizawa.

Born on March 14, 1911 in Kaminokawa, Japan, Yoshizawa is considered the grandmaster of origami – the art of paper folding.

Yoshizawa raised origami from a craft to a living art. He has been credited for creating more than 50,000 models.

The doodle with all the alphabets of Google appearing to be made of folded papers with strategically placed origami butterflies, done by Robert Lang, takes the visitor to a Google search results page for Akira Yoshizawa.
