    I like the one in the middle, like a head. I also think this doodle is quite nice

    Great artist, also known by his contemporaries as the Saint of Montparnasse for his late-life ascetic habits

    Friend of Pablo Picasso he brought to sculpture what he self described as:

    "Don’t look for mysteries; I bring you pure joy."

    Congrats GOOGLE for bringing him up

    Millions of Romanians will GOOGLE today happily

    My favourite sculpture is Ms. Pogany.

    Brancusi is ROMANIAN.
