Can you guess what is this image?

Please don’t scroll down until you make up your mind.

Give up?

This was the Google Home Page on Jan 28, 2008. Here is the entire image:

And, the point?

Point #1:

If you are Google, you can do whatever you want on your home page :)

Point #2

Since you are not Google, please don’t try this on your home pages :)

Well, having just come from the National Gallery in D.C., maybe Google is channeling Jackson Pollock. Some will think it is cool, and others will be perplexed-like what were they thinking?

Hi Raj

I sincerely can see the word Google in this painting.

I was initially perplexed with Google’s home page too. The image is one of Jackson Pollock’s painting.

Its Jackson Pollock’s birthday today. The image might be Google’s way of paying tribute to one of the most influential American painters in the last century.

Thanks to all of you. It makes a lot of sense now. However, one small change can make this even better. They can create a Google Knol page for Jackson Pollock and link to it. That way, they can also promote Google Knol :)

Of course, I also know that there are so many smart people there woho know what to do :)
