Search giant Google has commemorated India’s 74th Republic Day with an artwork that uses intricately hand-cut paper and features iconic landmarks such as Rashtrapati Bhavan, India Gate, North Block and South Block, a contingent and motorcycle-borne ‘Daredevils’. The doodle depicts the letters ‘g’, ‘o’, ‘g’, ‘l’ and ‘e’ in lowercase black fonts while a circle over the dome of the President’s House symbolically represents the other ‘o’ in ‘Google’. A peacock and floral patterns add a layer of charm to the art in monochrome.

“Today’s doodle celebrating India Republic Day was illustrated by Ahmedabad, Gujarat-based guest-artist Parth Kothekar,” the software giant said in a note shared on the doodle on its website. It also features a video of the doodle in the making.

On this day in 1950, India declared itself a sovereign, democratic, and republic state with the adoption of the Constitution.
