The global search engine, Google paid tribute to groundbreaking artist Oskar Schlemmer on his 130th birth anniversary on September 4. Oskar was a German born sculptor, painter, designer, and choreographer.

Google created a bulbous mechanical figure standing in a ballet pose wearing metallic masks in its doodle.

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

He was also famous 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.

Born on this day in 1888, Schlemmer was the youngest of six children who attended art school before becoming a director of stage research and production.

The polymath died in 1943, when Germany was under Hitler's rule.

Some 50 years later after Oskar's death, his painting 'Idealistic Encounter' from 1928 was sold for $1.487million in New York.
