Google celebrates German sculptor Oskar Schlemmer's 130th birthday, honours him with a doodle

Washington DC: Google on Tuesday celebrated the birth anniversary of German sculptor, painter, designer and choreographer Oskar Schlemmer with a doodle. The search engine giant paid tribute to Schlemmer on his 130th birth anniversary.

Creating a doodle, Google shows a bulbous mechanical figure standing in a ballet pose wearing metallic masks.

Schlemmer is well-known for his work 'Triadisches Ballett' or Triadic Ballet where the performers were transformed into geometrical figurines.

The German sculptor was also renowned for his fascination for the divine and architectural aspect of the human body. He captured each and every possible movement into his complex art form and labeled every performance as 'artistic metaphysical mathematics', which according to him was the purest form of physical aesthetics.

Schlemmer was the youngest of six children who attended art school before becoming a director of stage research and production.

The polymath died on April 13, 1943, when Germany was under Hitler's rule.
