From historical to educational to pop phenomenal, Google has delivered a number of doodles both pleasing and refreshing to our hyper-digitized eyes. Tied to today's Martha Graham Google Doodle, here are ten other favorites.

Burn it up
The first Google doodle to grace the Internet was designed to let the world know that Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin were attending the annual Burning Man festival. The final product fittingly combined the Google logo and classic Burning Man stick figure symbol.

A work of art
Google often pays homage to the world of art. The search engine giant gave a nod to the great Michelangelo with this tastefully nude logo in February 2003.

Celebrate Mother Earth
As an environmentally conscious and socially innovative entity, Google consistently makes it a point to honor Earth Day with some homepage love. An interactive Eden celebrated the 41st Earth Day last year.

Fancy a game?
On June 6, 2009, the Google Australia homepage paid tribute to Tetris, and celebrated the game's 25th anniversary with this eye-popping doodle. The art of making lines with falling blocks has never looked so vibrant.

In selected countries, Google gave math enthusiasts great fodder to gaze at with this tip of the hat to Pi Day on March 14, 2010 -- or 3/14. Middle school geometry must have had a field day with this one.

Woodles of Google Doodles
From the Cat in the Hat to the Grinch, Google's got Dr. Seuss covered. Theodor Seuss Geisel -- or, as we know him, Dr. Seuss -- would have been 105 on March 2, 2009.

It always ends with a bang
Our favorite Google doodle to date is this animated Rube Goldberg machine that was born on the Fourth of July 2010. The animation was set in motion by clicking an arrow on the left of the contraption. And, of course, there were fireworks at the end.

Google and Google doodle-ability
Google users in the U.K. got to see a Jane Austen-themed doodle when they searched the web on the famous writer's birthday last year. On December 16, 2010 the novelist would have been 235 years old.

Google consistently recognizes holidays around the world. This Israeli Independence day doodle lit up screens on May 10.

Waka waka waka
Our second favorite Google doodle may reveal the general age demographic of the "What's Trending" staff. As products of the 1980s, we're particularly partial to this interactive Pac-Man doodle, which was created to honor the iconic game's 30th birthday on May 21, 2010.
