Google Doodle – Leo Tolstoy

For a dozen years, Google has been occasionally swapping its everyday logo for a doodle, a sketch celebrating holidays, inventions, artists and sporting events.
Today is the 186th birth anniversary of Leo Tolstoy, the Russian novelist and philosopher. Google on its search page has created a captivating slideshow doodle showcasing his greatest works.
On clicking the doodle, it takes the visitor to Google search result page for news on Leo Tolstoy.
Below is a picture of the Leo Tolstoy Doodle on Google’s home page:
