Google Doodle – interpretation of the google doodle where the Indian bird is singing Olé to the eggheads

In this Google doodle we can se to eggs, one is turned up and the other one is turned down. The egghead that is turned down has the remote control and controls the function of the sun feather in both its own egghead and the other egghead. The eggheads in this case have old fashioned look of recording tapes. So one could see it as if the people that record and control are eggheads. They want to control others to agree, to be theirs forever and make their wishes come true. These meanings I took from the old meanings of what fan(solfjäder(sun feather in Swedish)) language ment.

Google doodle egghead controls eggheads and records every move, whilst the oddbird wins.
Google doodle egghead controls eggheads and records every move, whilst the oddbird sings Olé chant.

According to Wikipedia.se the fan(sun feather) could mean i.e.:

  • To hold the feather above the heart: I am yours forever.
  • To slowly close the feather: I agree completely.
  • To be elegant when closing the feather: You wishes will come true.

The eggheads have a white bakground and have a red dot. The Japanese flag has a white background and a red dot.
If we see the Japanese as symbols for Asians. Are the eggheads in the Google doodle the Asians?
Are the Google doodle eggheads trying to control other eggheads what to want, complete and be?
Indirect we could see this as a critic for the search algorithm that Google and other search engines use that try to figure out the searchers intent with the search on the search engine. The algorithm twists the users search results, which in fact results in you and  me not getting the same search results from Google.com. On top of this they look like cassette players, recording what the eggheads do, if they play ball(do as the eggheads want), so to speak. After all, there is a ball in this image.
In the image there is a G dressed as an indian, with the feathers in the hair and everything.
According to ungafakta.se the feather crown was common for the indian chiefs.The feather crown is holy and consists of feathers.
For Aztecs and Maya indians they use a Quetzal bird(quetzalfågel) for the feathers. The feather crown is bearer of all their
rulers energies, according to prisell.se.
Some Indians in the north west thought thunder, storms and rain was created by a giant that could cloth in a bird suite and fly. The wings on the figurine are made to look fake. I therefore thought of a kite (drake) that you can fly. In this case kite wings (dragvingar).
In Sweden there is a symbol named grip, it has dragon wings. The figure is fictional, part lion, part bird. Sometimes statues of a grip can  wear a crown, then it looks like the figure in the Google image. A grip is in English a griffin.
In the English Wikipedia the gripping has wings of an eagle, back legs of a lion and an eagle’s talon as front feet. Griffins are known
for guarding a treasure or priceless possessions. It can also be a symbol for dive power and guardian of the divine.
In the Google doodle the griffin (or thunder bird) is singing “Ole”, if you take the upper part of the G and the “le” outside the image doodle.
Why I also add the singing is since there comes a tune out from the singing g. In soccer “ole, ole, ole” is a very common chant for winning. Since it is football, then this is a likely interpretation of what the bird is singing.

This Google doodle has two parts really. The eggheads trying to control and monitor other eggheads, including themselves. Then we have  the oddbird in this case, it is trying to protect a treasure – maybe the Internet? And since “Olé” is common chant when winning, perhaps the oddbird is the winner afterall. The non recording oddbird, trying to protect freedom on the Internet.

Also in Marvel series the eggheads are villains(Wikipedia.se), that means bad guys. So are the people trying to record everything on the Internet, the bad guys?

So when looking at a Google doodle… perhaps there is more to it than you first see. The colors of the figures are the ones in the soccer games – Japan and Colombia, but then start to look at the meaning of the image and perhaps it ain’t all that innocent anymore? Hope you enjoyed this very simple interpretation. You  may even dig deeper and find more interesting outlooks and interpretations of this Google doodle.
