Who is Peter Carl Faberge? Story (and pictures) behind the Google doodle
A Faberge Egg from the Kremlin Museum collection in Moscow, Russia, March 2001. The eggs were first designed in 1884 by the artist Peter Carl Faberge who gave one to a Russian czar who then gave it to his wife as an Easter gift. The wife loved it so much that she ordered them to be made each year for Easter. Faberge's primary source of inspiration for the designs came from historical artworks from previous centuries.
